Done a bit of research and this seems to be the best combo I could come up with for my £-range.
Am I spending too much/little on any components?
Are all the components compatible?
Are there any cables etc. I need?
Is there anything i'm missing / should bear in mind?
Thanks in advance!

Right direction for sure, could use optimizing.
Corsair TXM is a decent PSU however it may be worth the extra money for an EVGA G3
Hyper 212 evo is a mediocre CPU cooler on today’s standards, the cryorig H7, or dark rock pro 4 would be better for overclocking.
-good choice on a GPU, SSD, and HDD
Here is a Ryzen build, sacrificing single thread performance for raw GPU power in the 2070. The 2600x can boost to similar speeds as the 9600k in multithreaded performance, at the cost of slightly slower single thread.

Make it even cheaper with Vega 64 for the same performance.
Thanks, I think im pretty set on an Intel processor, but will check out the other suggestions and compare. Appreciated !
Both inte and ryzen have their advantages. If you are looking for a long term able to support many future upgrades, superb value, and strong multithreaded performance, Ryzen is the better option. Intel has faster single core speeds, however is more expensive, has less value, will require future motherboard replacements, but at the advantage of being better at high refresh rate gaming. In your scenario, you will be more GPU limited, so I swapped the better CPU for the better GPU.
