Basically i want a pc for as cheap as possible for light gaming hence the a-10 5800k because it has the best inbuilt graphics solution which will make it cheaper and at least 8gb of ram.
Please leave some suggestions in pounds because I live in the UK.

Okay, so you THINK that it would cost you less if you went with that apu :/  bare in mind that these things cost 95-100 Pounds and FM2 socket motherboards cost about 45-50.. That's 150 for the motherboard and cpu itself. I see no reason as to why to get the the a-10. The only reason it beats the competition is because of its integrated graphics which only provides decent speed if paired up with 1866MHz of ram (Sorry to bust your bubble), The integrated gpu takes all its power from the ram mind you so you'll have to get 1866Mhz of ram which is about 30 pounds. Thats 180 just for the motherboard bundle :/  .. Heres my suggestion

Get this bundle, Do not judge it by the name just cause its celeron doesn't mean its not powerful.. Its as fast as the Core 2 Duo series which is still pretty damn good when it comes to games (Im using a e2140 overclocked) or if you can afford it get the G2120 Bundle from the same website.. Pair it up with a HD6670 and you have a better rig for the same if not less price. I wouldn't even get the HD6670, I would just go to CEX and get me a used GPU for 30 quid (I got a 9600GSO for 15 Quid haha which im using in my rig) .. Get a Good PSU, Tower and DVD-ROM from CCLONLINE (cheaper on that site but they dont stock ivy bridge celerons just yet) and you're good to go. A better machine.. for the same if not less price.

You better be ready to dish out at least 220 Pounds on this rig. If you cant afford that just go to cash converters or local shops to get a PC cheap to put u into the games. You can save up while you play some low end games. Like i do

Yes I completely agree the A10 isn't worth it for a budget rig. Especially given that you need some powerful RAM to get anything out of the integrated graphics - and that will cost you.
