  1. Your best bet is looking at what's used in your area if you want an i5. A brand new CORE i5 alone will cost 2/3 of your budget.

    I've been able to find some nice stuff on ebay that I almost pulled the trigger on before. Try seeing what mostly together / fully together used machines are. They won't be top of the line but they'll be good value.
  2. Ok I just saw the Core i3-6100 its pretty good all I need is a good Motherboard where it can support high end graphics card but also cheap
  3. CPU: AMD - Athlon X2 340 3.2GHz Dual-Core Processor (£28.18 @ Amazon UK)
    Motherboard: MSI - A68HM-GRENADE Micro ATX FM2+ Motherboard (£35.02 @ Ebuyer)
    Memory: G.Skill - Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3-1600 Memory (£26.40 @ Kustom PCs)
    Storage: Western Digital - Blue 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (£37.95 @ Amazon UK)
    Video Card: XFX - Radeon R7 250 2GB Core Edition Video Card (£56.99 @ Ebuyer)
    Case: BitFenix - Nova ATX Mid Tower Case (£26.40 @ Aria PC)
    Power Supply: EVGA - 600B 600W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply (£58.50 @ Aria PC)
    Total: £269.44

    It will be a complete set good for gaming in your budget. I read this on some other post. It will be around $350, so you can drop things whatever you want to drop as per your requirement and stuff you already have.

    A Gigabyte H110M-A should do the trick.

    Any recent mainstream GPU should work in this generation of motherboards don't worry.

    You will not have a video card or a legal OS setup, or a monitor, or keyboard or mouse for this budget if you want a decent upgradable system. CPU, Motherboard, Case, PSU, hard drive and RAM are the bare minimums you need to have a booting system and that is all of your budget even if you buy lower end parts.
    The Intel Pentium G4560 Kaby Lake is good for a starting gaming system, is $70 and has 4 threads. For a budget build, I would go with that CPU instead of the i3 which is quite a bit more.
    Keep in mind you will not have a "gaming" system till you can get a video card for it.
