Cheap new build for light gaming

Hello, I wish to build a sub £400 light gaming machine for University that will play Runescape, Skyrim and Rome II Total war. I live in the UK and need a new build for these games, web browsing and watching videos. I run quite a low Pizxel monitor and I would just like to see how cheap a good value desktop can get. I have looked at AMD Phenom X4's but I think they may be a little too powerful, so maybe an AMD Athlon II X4. But it's up to you as long as it's cheap. Thanks for the help guys.

  1. A10-5800k build...
  2. is it a complete pc buy it will be better if u tell us the component u need and the resolution ur going to play
    if u are going to game at 1366x768 than hd 7750 will be the least i will recommend apu's are good but not that good for gaming

    It is a complete build from scratch and I will be playing at 1366x768.
  4. gpu-7750 will be fine if u r a casual gamer but if u want any sort of future proofing gtx 650 ti will give u some
    cpu-fx 6300 will be a good budget choice but if u can stretch i5-3470 is better
    ram-8gb
    7750<7770<gtx 650 ti
