You can't really build a gaming computer for £300, to be honest.

What resolution are you wanting to play at, and what games will you be playing?

Mainly Minecraft, skateboarding and other action sports games games, a few shooters like tf2. I don't expect it to be amazing, but just enough to run them smoothly.
And the £300 won't include a monitor, keyboard, mouse, case or operating system,

Here you go. You can add a graphics card later - this APU will provide decent graphics on it's own.
