Used a different cooler,
chose a different gtx 1070 ti (have no issues with it,even use one myself),
took the just little more expensive 650watt RMx (could you even upgrade to a gtx 1080 ti without issues and is probably even more quiet),
and of course more ram.
If budget is up to around £2600 is the next also possible (or other gtx 1080's),

Is there really any point in increasing the ram beyond 8gb?
Also I've changed the gpu to a 1080 and revised where I'm buying things from. I also really like the look of the h115i so I'm going to stick with that, although I appreciate the suggestion.

I also changed the motherboard. A lot of comments online state that the customisation of the gigabyte motherboard doesn't work really well, and i might as well continue the Asus theme I have going here.

Yes newer games really approach or in some cases go over the limit that the 8gb system memory has so why i adviced 16gb.

3200 RAM is better but past 3000 every benchmark Ive seen is that its a very negligible boost. Now if the price is the same or only a couple bucks more then yeah get 3200, but if You can save 20 bucks I would save the 20 bucks and stick with 3000.

Since heimei1312 can go up to around 2600 pounds is the i7 a possibility so i see no reason why not to go for it.
The next site seems to be able to offer windows for less,
