I am welling to build a gaming PC, with good gaming performance, not VERY HIGH, just good enough to play recent games on reasonable frames/sec

My budget is 500 pounds, for mbd, gpu, cpu, mem and psu.

I'm going for AMD myself (smaller budget) but I'll have a stab at this.

From the parts you list I assume you have case, OS etc.

CPU: Core i5 2500k - £165
Mobo: Perhaps someone else can help here
GPU: Radeon HD6850 - £110
Ram: G-Skill Ripjaws 8Gb - £40
PSU: OCZ Fatal1ty 550w - £50

Total £365 and should get very high

Hope that helps to get you started

Sub the i5 for an AMD Phenom II X4 955 and get a better graphics card (not too sure on the price differences, might be able to get a cheap 6970, if not a 6950 or 560 ti)
