Made one for you, it's £340, a little over your budget, but I would save up to get it if you can, because it is a lot better than what you can get for £300.

You won't be able to get some of the things you wanted, with a budget of £300 and still be able to game at a reasonable resolution (1280*1024/1600*900/1920*1080)

So I got rid of the Full Tower, which are around £60-£80 cheapest, and unfortunately, with a budget like that, an Intel CPU is also out of the question, or one that offers the same performance as an AMD CPU for the same price, I substituted that for an Athlon 255 3.1Ghz Processor, which you should be able to OC to around 3.6-3.7Ghz, if you get a better cooler, but at least 3.4Ghz on stock.

Some good news is I got you a AM3+ Motherboard, so you can upgrade to Bulldozer when it comes out, and I managed to get a HD 6770 in there, as well.I'm not sure about the case which I picked out, but I was trying to keep as close to your budget as possible.

All in all, you should still be able to play games at high settings at 1600*1050, which, to be honest, is pretty good for £300.
