$530 (£325) Best Possible Gaming PC

Hello, I'm looking to build myself a gaming PC and i have a strict budget of £325 which i believe is around $520-540 dollars, Before i begin please dont link me anything from sites that dont ship to the UK (like Newegg)
I must also say im completely new to building computers.

I do not need an OS for i have got Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit from a mate

Resolution : I'd like to play on 1600x900 but it doesn't really matter.

[Note: I dont need a case, i have a Slim one so i need a Slim profile Graphic card and a TFX Slim PSU]

The things i am in need of are the following;

Processor (I'd like AMD but it doesn't matter)
Low Profile Graphics card (I was thinking of the HD 6670 1GB)
Ram [I'd like 8GB]
TFX PSU [I was thinking of this Needs to be around 300Watts]

I think that's about it and if you're kind enough to link me a whole build please make sure its compatible with each other (Like the motherboard has the right socket for the processor and the low profile graphic cards will fit into the Motherboard)
Overall I'd like to be able to play BF3 on High graphics, WoW MOP on ultra graphics and Guild wars 2 on medium-high
So if anyone would be kind enough to maybe link me some things i would be very grateful.

Hey, buddy i made this for you:

CPU: Intel Core i3-2120 3.3GHz Dual-Core Processor (£89.99 @ Amazon UK)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H ATX LGA1155 Motherboard (£73.99 @ Dabs)
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory (£28.00 @
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (£48.78 @ CCL Computers)
Video Card: XFX Radeon HD 6850 1GB Video Card (£86.02 @
Case: Cooler Master Elite 430 ATX Mid Tower Case (£37.98 @ Novatech)
Power Supply: Corsair 430W ATX12V Power Supply (£34.96 @ Ebuyer)
Total: £399.72

Its a bit over your budget but it's definitely worth every penny

it has A LOT of room for future upgrades should definitely consider stretching your budget.

Btw...screw your slim case, you need something better.
