UK new gaming pc suggestions

So im looking to build my first PC, ive helped build a system before so i have the knowledge but im not particulary aware of what components are good. Im looking to spend at the most £600 and would like to be able to game at a decent level of FPS on 1280x768.
Basically what im asking for is suggestions on components for the system. I dont need any of the peripheals like a monitor or keyboard and i have no bias to intel or AMD. whatever is most effective.
thank you in advance.

  3. Intel Core i3-2100 £86

    Gigabyte GA-H61MA-D3V GEN3 £47

    8GB Mushkin Blackline #996995 (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz 9-9-9-24 £39

    Asus HD 6850 DirectCU V2 £96

    500GB Western Digital Caviar Blue £60

    550W XFX Core Edition

    BitFenix Shinobi Black £40

    MICROSOFT Windows Home Premium 7 SP1 64-bit £70

    Total cost £499.97

    You can save in a number of places, such as using a pentium cpu, 4 instead of 8GB of RAM, a cheaper H61 motherboard and a 6770 rather than a 6850.
    There is no chance of overclocking the cpu on this build, if you'd like to do that you'd need a Z68 Mobo and a i5 K series cpu (about £80 more)
