(UK) Budget gaming build, already have HDD/case/psu

hey guys! new here, not sure if this is the correct place to ask or if there's a separate thread ect

I'm looking for a budget gaming build, willing to spend up to £350 for the gpu/cpu/mobo/ram (don't need an optical drive or any other extras). don't need a hardcore gaming build (I only play older games and LoL, haha, but I need a new computer for standalone day-z)

I already have the case/hdd/psu
psu: http://www.amazon.co.uk/XFX-P1-550S-XXB9-PRO550W-Edition-Supply/dp/B004RJ8EKI

case: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Antec-One-Midi-Tower-Case/dp/B006TVQU6C/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1363612518&sr=1-1


and the hdd is a WD 1tb 7200RPM


I'm really torn on what to buy though. like, if I should get an i5 3570k and lesser GPU, an AMD cpu and the best GPU I can afford or an i3 and a mid-range CPU


I'm on a fairly strict budget though since I'm pretty much not eating for a month cause of my new build! haha


thanks in advance! (also, if you have any coupons for the main retailers for computer components don't be afraid to tell me where to get them ^_^)
