That's a nice little build then but I still think a console will serve him better in the long run.

I had to change a couple of things because the site I usually use didn't have some of those things but this is the closest thing I could build with similar components

It's going to be extremely hard to still get a motherboard and CPU/APU and OS (unless OP uses Ubuntu which is terrible for games laugher.gif ) with £16 left.

A few times yeah but I really wouldn't recommend someone use it for a gaming machine. I'm not saying it's a bad OS overall, just for gaming tongue.gif

EDIT: I used 11.10

For example..a HD 7750 price in India starts from 7900 INR = $158 & in USA it costs $109..mad.gif

Price of ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 in India is 15900 INR =$318 & in USA it costs $195..mad.gif

Everyone seems to be forgetting he wants to buy this pc for GAMING. What games you expect him to be ablt to play with onboard crappy AMD gpu? Tetris? Space invaders?

Seriously either increase the budget by at least £150, or dont bother buying a pc at all. He will be so so disappointed with whatever £300 'pc' we put together, that he will be wishing he never asked.

Sorry to be so harsh but thats the sad truth here, its like wanting a porsche for the price of a 50cc scooter...

Im sure it can...and my cpu can do 6ghz with stock volts of 1.20v.

Dammit why did I buy this gtx 570 when I could have just used onboard amd GPU...I am so stupid.
