Hello Im new here so please be nice :) 
I am thinking about buying a new PC mainly for gaming.
The sort of games ill be playing are SC2, diablo 3 and some older ones (but if it can run those two im sure it can run old ones) I'll also be getting some new games when they come out.
I have been looking around some websites that build custom PCs and found a few i like. I have built one and am now wondering is this build adequate or too much. I know very little when it comes to components and stuff like this so all help is welcome.

• AMD Bulldozer FX 4100,
• Gigabyte M68MT-S2,
• 8GB DDR3 Kingston 1333 (2 x 4Gb),
• Integrated Sound Card,
• DVD+/- RW - 22X Samsung SATA,
• 500GB SATA Hard Drive SATA 3,
• No Secondary Hard Drive,
• ATI HD 6670 1024MB,
• No Monitor,
• CiT Mars Midi Tower Gaming Case with 2 x Blue LED Fans & LED Display,
• CiT 700W Black Edition PSU,
• Windows 7 Home premium 64 bit,
• No Additional Software,
• X,
• 12 Months Warranty,

just to let you know I do not want to spend much more than £600 so if you have suggestions please keep this in mind. Also if you know any good websites feel free to tell me, if you want to recomend me a build im more than happy to see them.
thanks in advance. :)

Have you considered buying the parts and mounting it yourself? You can get a better PC for the same price.
That being said you can probably get a better rig if you get a better GPU (6770 or better), personally I'd go Intel for the CPU and a Corsair or Antec PSU with 500 or 600watts will be more than enough
