    Greetings and welcome to MajorGeeks!

    With that small of a budget, not sure what kind of gaming machine you are looking for. More of a casual gaming machine, from the price tag.

    What is a local website that you frequent to buy stuff in the UK?

    To enter the gaming world i would want a high cal. dual core with at least 1 gig of DDR2!
    A nice chunk of video card and some pretty decent cooling i reckon....

    Usually more than your prescribed budget but still attainable!!

    core 2 duo processor (E6300 or 6600, they are the cheapest)
    7900GS or x1800XT video card
    Corsair, Patriot, or Crucial DDR2 (at least a gig)
    Good PSU (Antec or OCZ, 500W minimum)
    Western Digital or Seagate hard drive (250gigs is only about $80USD)
    Pretty much whatever case u want
    dont forget about disk drives (dvd/dvd-r drives are most common)
