I'm planning to make a budget gaming pc such as this one and was wondering what sort of games it could play and the fps it would/could get:

(PS I need the wireless adapter because my room doesn't have a phone jack so I can't set up an ether-net connection) (PSS any amendments would be appreciated)

Looks good. I'd go for Windows 8 though. Better memory - http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/kingston-memory-khx16c9b1bk28

Would the better memory make a difference to the speed of the system?

Yeah faster memory is better.

A better option in my opinion is to get this build. It doesn't have a dedicated graphics card but an integrated one into the CPU that can play Crysis 3 (one of the most demanding game out) at 1080p on low-medium settings. So you can then buy a dedicated graphics card later when you can afford a really good one.

Find a different HDD, CCL doesn't sell that anymore. =(

You might find a 1TB HDD for like £30.
