If you want an opinion on the builds you posted, I would say go with AMD FX 8320 rather than a 8350 nor 6300. You can overclock the 8320 to the speed of a 8350, and a 6300 might bottleneck(probably not though). Would say this one is the better choice out of the options: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/WhCWBm

Hi thanks for the advice, I think I am now defiantly going to go for the fx 8320 . Also I appreciate you posting a suggested build, I really like it but unfortunately it works out well over my budget in uk prices :/

No problem, I just assumed that 750 euros converted to $1270, so I just posted this one :). Good luck on your build.
