I've been reading around a bit after a post I'd made a few weeks ago that opened my eyes to how clueless I was, I have put together this potential build and was looking for some input on whether it is compatible etc. I'm not expecting anything amazing here, I'll be upgrading as I go along over th enext few months but how does this look to start with?

Would a case like this work too, it'd knock another tenner off, maybe go towards getting a bit more RAM or something?

The MB is Micro ATX and Case is made for ATX And Micro ATX so should work together.

Thanks for that. Just realised while browsign there are cases for the same sort of price with PSUs too, would picking something like this up be fine too, to cancel out the PSU on the list?

Yes, try to find a Case with higher than 500 Watt Power supply.

May be could find one with 550W ~ 650W would be nice.

However the one you picked out with 500W PS is good.
