Hi guys, I need help building a new gaming build, I will mainly use it to play games like Combat Arms, A.V.A and minecraft, I might also play Skyrim and Modern warfare 3.

My budget: 350 Pounds (375 max)
Parts preference: AMD APU
Part sites: Any popular and cheap UK websites

What I already have:

What I need:

Additional comments: I'd like it to play all the games above at high settings on a 1440x900 or 1680x1050 res at 50 fps.

I think your expectations are a bit high for your budget.

350 pounds is about right for an APU system.
