Where to begin, do you currently have a chassis, keyboard, mouse, monitor that you could reuse with this build? As these would greatly assist any possible recommendations regarding your inquired gaming usage?

No, this is a completely new build, I could source screens and other stuff another time, I just want the actual computer

That's a very difficult budget. I tried building a budget gaming rig on Scan UK and I end up 560 Pounds. Here's the specs:

i3 2120 with 8 GB of RAM
1 TB HDD
Nvidia 560TI video card
700 W Corsair PSU
Case and DVD
no OS

I just began checking out Amazon.UK to try and find something that suits your budget and needs, I happened to come across a decent motherboard/CPU/RAM combo : http://www.amazon.co.uk/AMD-Bulldoze...202441&sr=1-14


A solid GPU for mid-range 1080p resolutions : XFX ATI Radeon HD 6870 HD-687A-ZHFC Graphics Card 1 GB PCI-e GDDR5 Memory DVI HDMI 1 GPU: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

Seagate 3.5 inch 1TB Barracuda Desktop Hard Drive: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

NEW! Samsung SH-S223C 22x SATA DVD RW Writer Burner: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

The chassis is mostly a personal choice of taste, I'd recommend looking for one bundled with a 400Watt or greater PSU. I really don't like to skimp on the power supplies.
