Default Help me Build my computer :)

Heyy guys, just looking for a little advice on building my own computer, im into FPS games like call of duty, BF3, i also like Skyrim and RPG games, And Gmod, im wanting a computer that can run at high settings, dosnt need to be ultra, just high, i will be playing at 1920x1080, i have keyboard, mouse and a monitor, all i need is the insides to be decent enough to run high-ish games, and the bigger titles,

My budget is £350-400GBP ish if its possible let me know but the cheaper the better .

If you can afford a bit extra, go with the above setup, add this card instead.

At least ditch the Phenom and get the i3 that I suggested...
and change the RAM back to 1600 for the same price; http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/1Eow4

I agree with the RAM, but I would stick with the Phenom setup unless you plan on upgrading to an Intel quad later. That would make more sense in the end.
