console gamer turning to PC

I'm hoping to build a gaming PC myself, but as I have been a console gamer all my life, I have no clue what I'm doing. So could someone just recommend some good parts? I have a starting budget of £300 and I already have hard drives and an OS.

  1. Stick with console gaming if your budget is 300 euro, you'd need at least 500 euro for anything decent.

    300 euro is like lowest settings at 720p...not worth it.

    You're better off saving for a PS4 at the end of the year or saving up more for a PC.
  2. Three hundred Pounds really isn't that much, but here's my attempt:
