But you could keep your case, to save money.

But what motherboard do you have ? what ram, what power supply ?

ebay shops are my personal favourite.

you could use your current hard drive.

and you may not need a cd rom, windows 7 can be installed from USB.

That and from what i can find out about you're case (?) it's a micro atx case and will fit that mobo/ram/cpu combo,.From what i could see the motherboard now is a m-atx with sata connectors which means you probably are able to reuse the dvd/cd player.

So to further upgrade you could use the next which are the best i could find with your budget,
http://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-power-supply-cx430
http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-video-card-01gp43655k...
or seeing that games might make more use of Vram,
http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-video-card-gtx650tibd...
I don't know where you live,and i don't really need to,so if the pcpartpicker prices work for you i don't know.

Ebay ?

The best AMD processors are, in order :

the 8350
the 8320

the 6350
the 6300

Avoid all the Bulldozer range.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bulldozer_%28microarchitec...

But maybe you should wait until AMD release the new Steamroller CPUs before buying anything.

I think you could do with less then 500watt,i think the following psu would do fine,
http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00ALYP208/?tag=pcp0f-21
For a gtx 650 ti boost i found a cheaper one too,it has a better cooler=more quiet then the other one,
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/2gb-msi-gtx-650-ti-boost...
with the money saved you could buy a better case like the next one,
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/XIGMATEK-Asgard-PRO-Chassis-P...
your total amount spend would be the same.
What you choose is up to you,if you think that cheap case just looks better by all means take that one,but i think the other one just is a better quality case.

what about cpu cooler ?

also, you could just get an 8320, it's cheaper.

Or wait until AMD release the new CPUs
