Xeon E3-1231V3 was added to PCPartPicker: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/intel-cpu-bx80646e31231v3- 100MHz extra for roughly the same price.

That MSI mobo is no longer cheap enough to recommend, I'd get eg. http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-motherboard-z97g43

 

I can't see the need for the extra RAM, unless aside from gaming you're gonna do things like video editing, etc.

 

Done deal, swapped them out for your recommendations.

 

I could do without the RAM you're right, will settle with my current 8GB.

 

Got a new link now too http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/zChft6

 

So the case is compatible? I'm bricking myself in case all the parts come and they don't fit or rather are not compatible.

From what I've found the graphics card will fit nicely. The case apparently fits CPU coolers up to 160mm in height, the Hyper 212 Evo is 159mm so it will be snug. Just make sure there is clearance for the RAM underneath it, using slots 2 and 4 probably won't be a problem though.

Thank you so much for taking the effort to figure that out, you even went and found a relevant picture.

It looks like i'm settled on what PC to be buying then!
