I'm 14 and I'm really poor, I can spend about £330 on a gaming pc and I have two builds on my shortlist, one premade, and one component list. Please post pcpartpicker lists but only if all parts are order-able in the UK (preferably Amazon Uk)

Here are the two I have in mind

Thanks for your time to read this and I look forward to your answers :)

Okay, second build will be better for gaming. As in the first build, gt 610 can barely or cannot run current games.
Have to agree the second build has athlon x4, but with hd 7770 you can atleast run current games at reasonable settings.
So second build will be better than the first one. But saving more money and buying a better cpu will be a good choice.

I was going to build something very similar to this, but I degraded the cpu and hdd to get 8gb of ram seeing as I often have many applications open and lots of tabs in chrome, do you think that I really need 8 or if 4 enough? Also the video card that I have in the amazon wishlist is not from amazon but is the same card with a better cooler that costs less money, is it the same card or am I being a techtard?

-Well later on you can add another stick of 4gb RAM. Btw i think 4 will be enough, but for better performance, yes, 8GB is better.
-The difference in the cards is that the one i picked is GHZ Edition, it means it runs stock at 1000Mhz, and gives a little bit more boost over the regular 7770. And in the aspect of cooling the Sapphire card has little bit better cooling than the HIS card.
