I don't mind updating in a few years but I want to play current games and ones coming out soon like The Witcher 2, Dragon Age 3, and the Elder Scrolls Online + Skyrim and other games. Here is the link to a PC someone suggested for me. Link: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/205l3 Many thanks in advance!! :)

I think that your PC is decent for these games. You might not be able to play them in like Ulta or Very high graphics but other than that I think you are fine.

Ah cool. That is good to know. Are there any specs I can upgrade but keep it around the same price? I don't mind upgrading a further 50/100 quid.

Very good answer by AMD Radeon! The thing that would make your build significantly better is a better GPU of course but working with a 500w PSU is like working on the edge. Your current GPU is ok with 500w but a better one I don't know... 550-600w is fine. To sum up AMD Radeon made you a very good build.
