$300.00 is a tough budget. This is an option:

$400 is what I consider the minimum budget for a computer outright (if the OS is included in the cost). To get a gaming oriented rig you really need to be offering $700+.

Otherwise go with the above build, though I personally would swap this PSU in.
Corsir CX430, 80+ Bronze. $40 ($20 rebate)

A little bit better than Vehlor's for a little bit less. If you still can't afford it then swap out the A10 for an A8 or even an A6 if necessary.
