What's the point of the 'k'? He's not going to do any overclocking if you have to choose his parts.
1TB HDDs really aren't worth it anymore, the 2TB version is like 10 quid more, maybe even less.
4GB on the GPU seem a bit wasted as well.
/edit
Just checked my PCPP account for saved part lists and saw that i only have a $1100 build. Need to update my lists.

Also, you could go for an Arc Mini R2 which is only 60 quid.

Then drop to a 2x4GB kit of RAM and he can easily upgrade it later, without going too much over budget right now.
On the Arc Mini R2. I love that case!

on second look, the H100i will fit just about but it isn't ideal

Bill Owen shows how you could fit it by offsetting it by using the grill rather than the included 120mm mounts

I said Mini R2, considering he has chosen an mATX board anyway

My mistake! I fixed it now, but my opinion goes for both cases.

Yeah don't get the WD Greens for main storage. They are good for backups and that's about it.

Used my Green for two years...i'm just fine with it. You don't need 7200rpm for opening .doc files and listening to music, folks.

I use my main storage for game installs and a fair few people do to. Head parking on the greens just make them unusable.

Some people also move their page file to their main storage in which case a WD green would be horrendous.

I use two greens for all my backup's and download drives and they are fantastic I think it's a solid build for the money

Hmm, in retrospect I guess you're right. Kinda forgot I have double the SSD space to put games and programs on. If he can get away with putting his current programs and games on his SSD and just leave his HDD for documents, photos, music etc. I don't see why the Green would be a big problem. Though with the Blues not being much more it's probably not worth the hassle either way.
