Budget : 600 - 700 USD / 400 - 500 British Pounds

Location: I wish to get al my parts from the UK

Use: excellent high frame rate 1080p gaming that can fit in a mini itx case such as corsair 380T

I dont need any peripherals and OS, I just need help with what best would fit in the afformentioned case

*Edit: Included price in GBP

If that case is required, it's a pretty tough budget. If any decent small case will do, then it's a bit easier
