So after numerous threads and much learning I have landed on the rough idea of the final components of my planned build, and thus they are as follows.
However I would like to say why I have chosen what and why the weird prices.
The reason the Ram and PSU are listed as £0 and the mobo being listed as £150 is due to the fact that I am buying these three items from a friend for £150 (a STEAL at that price).
I already own the GPU, Heatsink, Case and the 240GB Kingston SSD.
The CPU I will purchase used from my local Electronics supplier for £185, and the only thing I am paying full price new for is the M.2 SSD which will become my Linux boot drive.

I chose the I7 based upon advice for VT-D functionality, and everything else is based on my own idea of what should be a good functioning system. I am just wondrous as to any other issues that may arise due to my hardware and/or software. if you have any better suggestions for the hardware I should utilise let me know, any feedback and advice is welcome.
I basically just want to double check that everything will work as expected.
EDIT: Yes the Mobo does support VT-D
