Hello. I couldnt see your suggestion. But I think I made a good gaming build for £249.41. I am trying to lower this value but I will destroy its gaming power.

http://www.lambda-tek.com/computing/pcdesigner.pl?cart=...

Components:

Processor
1 x Intel Pentium (G620) 2.6GHz Dual Core Processor... £38.30

Motherboard
1 x P8H61-M LX REV.3 S1155 H61 MATX - VGA+SND+GLN+U... £36.06

Memory
1 x Corsair Value Select 4GB (2 x 2GB) Memory Kit 1... £15.58

Graphics Card
1 x RADEON HD 6750 1GB DDR3 - PCI-E VGA DVI-I HDMI ... £55.59

Chassis
1 x PC SKINZ 710B ATX/MATX MIDITOWER BLACK CASE £21.82

Power Supply
1 x Antec Basiq VP-450P - Power supply ( internal )... £27.80

TOTAL: £195.15 (without VAT)

And dont mind what they are saying about the psu. Both CPU and GPU use very low power. You can check it here too: http://images10.newegg.com/BizIntell/tool/psucalc/index...

"Our recommended PSU Wattage: 340 W

Edit: A lower cost but much less gpu/cpu power:

This is the best I could do.

I made a little search about Sandybridge Celeron's gaming power and I found that its very powerful for its price.

An xbitlabs review that I found http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cpu/display/celeron-g5... the reviewer said:
"Sandy Bridge microarchitecture has always performed very well in 3D games. And today is no exception. Unlike their predecessors, the new Celeron processors can deliver much higher fps rate. Moreover, the difference between the Celeron and Pentium processors doesn’t seem that significant at all, so low-cost Celeron G540 or Celeron G530 processors may be a good option for inexpensive gaming systems after all."

And with numbers like this:

I think its safe to say that you will not see a performance hit from cpu on 2nd suggestion.
