I went for this build, and changed three things, but i am not sure, after sitting last night i changed the following, as u can see but i wonder if the processor will make such a huge change maybe rather keep normal Ryzen 5 3600 but on first storage change it from 512GB PCS 2.5" SSD, SATA 6 Gb (520MB/R, 450MB/W) to a 4TB SEAGATE BARACUDA HDD 6GB/s 5400rpm 256mb cache. for more space. it will mostly be used for games but i am not a hardcore gamer. really play secondlife, wow here and there and XCOM

Firstly, you really want a better monitor than that as it is a very low refresh monitor (60Hz) when you want 144Hz to use that GPU properly. There are components being bought that are unecessarily using budget: The Wi-Fi card is not worth the extra £70 spent on it; a cooler isn't needed etc.

PCS don't have stock of "cheaper" 1080p 144Hz monitors currently so you would need to buy elsewhere. This is the spec I'd go with given your budget:
