cant see you building a decent gaming pc for that budget--a decent graphics card would use half your budget on its own--which games are you wanting to play?

aria uk is about the best site price wise

for that budget to play any reasonably intensive game i would think you would need to look at a second hand pc from ebay

ha, ha.

And I disagree with the 'second hand PC from Ebay' crap.

as I type this at 6:09 pm on Sept 12, 2011, 300 British pounds sterling = 474.4800 US dollars.

At that price, for a basic gamer, AMD is your option.
a Llano A8 system can handle light gaming tasks at 1680x1050, and you might squeeze in a low-end 6xxx in hybrid crossfire.

alternately, you can get an inexpensive Athlon II X3 or X4, an AM3+ board and something like a 6670 or 6770 and still have a decent budget gamer.

for supercheap, I'll suggest a 445 or 450, an ASUS or gigabyte 760 that has an AM3+ entry. 4 GB of DDR3-1333, a 500 GB HDD. a Corsir CX 430, Antec Earthwatts 380, or Xigmatek PC402, whichever is cheaper. and a HD6670 or GTS 450
