Hi,

I'm looking at https://www.komplett.dk/product/11360/pc-tablets/komplett-pc/komplett-gamer/komplett-summer-gamer-coffee-lake-ed?offerId=KOMPLETT-321-11360#custom-parts-list (priced at roughly 840 GBP).

CPU/cooler: Intel Core i7-8700, akasa AK-959CU cooler
GPU: Gainward GeForce GTX 1060 3GB
MoBo: ASUS TUF B360M-Plus Gaming, S-1151
RAM: Crucial DDR4 2400MHz 8GB
HDD: Barracuda 1TB + Intel Optane 16GB
PSU: Cooler Master B500 V2

I am looking for a high value-per-price build able to handle at least World of Warcraft on highest settings, though I will likely be playing other, more demanding games as well. I have the option of modifying the above; there is a decent list of alternatives.

My monitor's resolution is 1920x1080.

It's been ages since I've ventured to put a build together (my current machine is 8+ years old and in need of replacement), but it seems to me that the PSU may be insufficient. The alternatives listed are mostly Corsair. What would your suggestion be, and are there any other parts I should look at replacing for maximizing value per money spent?

Thank you in advance
 
Yes, for the choices you have, TX550M is good to have, get RM650x if you have extra to spare.
For wow, I7 has little to none benefit, I will get a 8400/8600k instead.
Why not build your own :)
Add an SSD too...

I can change it, yes. Picture of the options (prices in DKK; conversion rate to GBP is 8.4:1):
