Gaming PC for £340

I would like to build myself a new PC, considering mine is getting slightly outdated.

My budget is £340.

So, can someone recommend decent components I can build some from(meaning just get me ALL the components :p)?

Note: £340 is the minimum, but please keep prices lower than £1000, as I CAN get help with money from some people, but I'd rather pay with my own money.

  2. Hi :)

    I own computer shops in the UK...

    You CANNOT build a GAMING Pc for that amount... the graphics card alone should cost you at LEAST £250 ... (mine cost £760)

    All the best Brett :)
