Default First Build Thoughts/Feedback

Hi I'm new here and this is my first post. Anyway, I am new to computer building but I have selected parts for a new computer on(a link below). The PC is going to be used as a office PC for just regular word processing and things like that. But also sustainable for multitasking and HD video streaming which I think the part I've chooses are OK for. The budget for this is no higher than the current price so it is much more of a budget build. I was wondering if the parts I have picked are a good choice. Can anyone give some feedback or improvements on this and I much appreciate it if you could reccomend any parts if nessecary.
Many Thanks

Looks good to me. If you wanted to double the ram you could (not very costly) but 8gb is fine.

I wound't double the RAM. I see no point in doing so for what he describes hes needs are.

Instead of that i would upgrade the CPU to the 6500. It cost 16 pounds more, but you get 500mhz more on the clock.
Not gonna do a huge difference, but then again, the price difference isn't huge ether.
I personally would like to have that extra little boost for rendering and decompression.
But it's up to you if you want to spend that extra 16 pounds.

Ether way it's a good system. Happy building.
