I'm building my first gaming pc and would like to know what my components are like, I have a budget of £500/$800 which doesn't include monitor, mouse keyboard or os and I would stretch it if i must. I have chosen an amd as it is cheaper but would like to find an intel just as good but not that expensive or a better amd cpu.

The X4 is a great pick for a low budget CPU. If you can spare a few extra bucks an i3-3220 should outperform it in most areas though. Also for the price of that 660, an AMD 7870 will also perform better.
