I'd suggest you consider the AMD FX 8320 for the processor; it's a about £100, but is ALMOST as good as the i5, and has 8 cores which may end out giving it the edge over the i5 in the long run.

It'd free up a little more for the best GPU option. i5 will perform better, but 8320 is significantly better value.

FX 6300 is best CPU for VALUE at the moment (£70!!), is better than an i3, and is sufficient for most modern games with a good GPU. not as good as 8320 or i5; but 6 cores and, if overclocked, would give you very competitive performance.
