I need a PC which will run WoT on medium settings.
I just need the tower no peripherals.
Not the prettiest of machines and could do with a 120mm fan in the front but this is a maximum gaming attack with minimal if any upgrades needed for a while. You could drop an locked haswell i5 in later if needed though. With AMD you are offered no upgrade path and weaker performance from the start.

If you want to get closer to £300, the G3258 still offers the same upgrade path, a locked i5 will work nicely here, the cheapest R9 370 is the best one imo with a lovely cooler. Again either switch cases or just stick a cheap 120mm in the front of this one and it's brilliant.
BTW, as much as I like the 860K the G3258 is still better despite being a dual core.
Should mention OP. The reason these are here (I assume in the first place and certainly my tweeked version) is that the integrated graphics on the new skylake chips are actually game capable at 720p and make a good stop gap while you save for better graphics. In my case you obviously have £85 left over from your MAX budget to save towards that upgrade.
However, the 4170 GTX 950 build is still better imo.
How do you do that break down thing?
In your build, find the markup section at the top, it has a PPCP logo and a REddit logo.
Does it compare to APU graphics?
Well skylake CPU's use HD 530 witch if you look up is doing well. But the thing is to use it with fast ram or ells you will get bad end results
Its better than any current amd apu, that's not to say its good, just better.
Best graphics out of all of 'em with a good PSU and a reasonable powerful processor. Not exactly an overclocking Mobo but you could probably squeeze it up to 4ghz if you try.

I was literally about to post a build almost exactly the same! GG
Nice one, actually has a GPU at this range. Very awesome.
Will a G3258 bottlenech a Turbo 960?
Yes but it will almost certainly remain playable. The i3 / 950 again will be the better solution for all round playability though
I've managed to get raise my budget to £400 could you give me an Intel build?
Yes I'll be using Windows 7
