Help with new budget gaming build!

Hello, could anyone suggest me a CPU+GPU combo for around £310 using Amazon.co.uk, Scan.co.uk or cclonline.com? I want to be able to play most modern games with playable fps.

  3. bigcyco1, i can get a 7950 3GB for the same price as the MSI 7870 hawk edition so would that be better? heres the link to it: http://www.cclonline.com/product/89496/FX-795A-TDJC/Graphics-Cards/XFX-Radeon-HD-7950-Graphics-Card-3GB/VGA0749/

    Also, why an i3-2100? you can get an i3-3220 for around the same price and it performs slightly better but i heard i3s aren't very good for gaming, is this true?

    Also, why an i3?
    Because i could not fit i5 in your budget with decent card and i3 will bottleneck with 7950 :(
  5. what about this combo : i5-3470 + GTX 660?
