Decent budget gaming PC with a MSI Radeon R9 280 3GB

Budget - £250-£300 Location: UK Use: Gaming I have Windows 10 x64

I have a decent PSU (Cant remember what it is, but it was a decent brand expensive one!) I already have a MSI Radeon R9 280 3GB (https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-video-card-r9280gaming3g)

I would like to play the latest games on the higher settings with decent FPS. I do not need peripherals, just the components & case

My current PC has a Phenom X955 Black edition, m2n32-sli deluxe mobo and 8gb ram (4x2gb really old, cant remember the type)

I would like to see an obvious improvement in performance from my current build :)

Thanks very much for looking into this.

Try saving £12 more and this will be fine, it's lot better than your pc, and it will surely run new games on decent settings and fps. :)

Cool, thanks for these! I forgot to mention that I already have a 128gb ssd and 1tb hdd....could I get anything upgraded with the extra money?

Also, what setting would you expect I could play GTAV on at these kind of prices? I could possibly go out to £375 if the extra money would make a huge difference in fps and general quality?
