What storage do you have currently?
What is the model of your PSU? B1, BT, BV, BQ? EVGA make loads of 650W 80+Bronze rated units.
What monitor(s) are you using with this system? Make and model.
Will you be overclocking?
What games will you be playing?
What peripherals do you have, out of interest?

The case should have some branding on it somewhere, you can maybe re-use your case if we find out what case it is. Or would you rather just invest in a new case anyway?

2TB hard disk(pretty slow) and the PW is BQ. And a samsung (S24D590L). Yeah ill be overclocking. as for games, pretty much anything really but mainly new triple A games is the aim. Peripherals is pretty standard, razor mouse, turtle beach headset and steelseries keyboard (will be investing new peripherals after pc lol)

Id rather get a new case all together, this ones not so nice anymore hahaha

Re-use your current HDD and PSU. You could easily save some money by dropping to an R5 1600 and/or AB350M Pro4 motherboard. The AB350M Pro4 and R5 2600 aren't compatible unless the B350 motherboard's BIOS has been updated. You could also drop to a 240GB SSD to save 50 quid if you want, or 8GB ram to save £70. Grab that RX 580 like right now, while you can.
