Regardless of money you have to operate with you can still get bang-for-buck effects as long as you're $500+ for my personally at least.

If you want, give me a price range in USD and what type of computer (amd or Intel build).

The listing parts you just put are low to medium standard, strongly suggest upgrading your Power Supply to 550+ to have any extra optimal usages to go on command.

Going with an amd build, intel are way outta my budget at the moment.

Price range in dollars would be about $700 sorry for the edit, the case & ssd drive i already have & the OS also, thanks for having a look.

Would the R9 270 be worth the extra £30 tho??

You'll see a slight increase, if you want to see a noticeable difference go for the 270x.

Here's a link to find out exactly what's the difference in what you're asking for.

I think for now i will stick with the R7, would you recommend an APU maybe? Was thinking A10 6800k..
