If all you plan on doing is play Minecraft, try that. Like the above poster said, I am not sure what you have, so I didn't include OS, kb/m, or monitor.

Using charmer's setup would give you very little room for upgrades, but it's hard to get something better for 300 euros... The OS alone costs 80 euros....

Do yourself a favor and save up some more.

ESKlassen, you don't need to put much money into a computer for minecraft..
I have windows 8 here ready to install, a monitor mouse etc too..

So you'd only need a case with charmer's suggestion and you'd be ready to go?

I didn't realise my previous suggestion failed to link properly from my phone. So here is something that should allow you to play Minecraft.

The problem is that the iGPU inside the A6-5400K is enough to play Minecraft on 1080p, so the Radeon 7770 is not a good value.

Minecraft isn't really a demanding game, so would I be able to record at 60fps with just the A6-5400K on lower settings?

My pc currently is terrible and only thing good is the graphics card
(7750) and I can record 40-50fps on highish settings

Then I would recommend this if you're also recording:

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 370K 4.2GHz Dual-Core Processor (£38.95 @ Scan.co.uk)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-F2A88XM-HD3 Micro ATX FM2+ Motherboard (£47.11 @ CCL Computers)
Memory: Crucial Ballistix Sport 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory (£30.96 @ Amazon UK)
Storage: Toshiba 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (£38.29 @ Aria PC)
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB Video Card (£67.90 @ Amazon UK)
Case: Cooler Master N200 MicroATX Mid Tower Case (£31.33 @ Amazon UK)
Power Supply: Antec EarthWatts Green 380W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply (£40.22 @ Amazon UK)
Total: £294.76

I changed the CPU to 370K because having a dedicated graphics card renders the iGPU in the A6-5400K useless. With the 370K, you'll get a marginally better CPU performance. I also downgraded the memory to 1600 MHz, because higher speeds show a performance improvement with A6-5400K but not with 370K. Upgrading to a Radeon 7770 will allow you to record ~60 FPS with medium settings on Minecraft, I would think.
