My friend purchased a Cyberpower PC recently, and it is awesome, and I really like the website. I have recently got properly into PC gaming, after switching from the xbox, and my laptop is no longer suitable for gaming, so I would like to purchase a gaming rig. Custom building looked a little complicated and scary, and on cyberpower the deals are good and there are warranties if things go wrong, so I'm thinking of going for a cyberpower PC.
I currently have £300 and I am saving up around £600 for the eventual PC. I am looking for advice as to the best gaming PC build I can purchase for £600, possibly with a monitor, possibly without, depending on how good the PC is-I don't have a monitor at the moment but am willing to pay more for a good pc and not get a monitor and instead use an average one my friend has. I also don't really understand what half the components actually do or what is good/bad so some advice would be very welcome.
Thanks for reading

Have a look at this system, for £600 inc VAT. It has an AMD Fusion APU so the graphics chip in the CPU works in Crossfire mode with the separate 6670.
I've included a 19" screen with a relatively low resolution which is well suited to this system.
AMD A8 3870K S&S Overclocked (3.5GHz typical)
AMD 6670 (+6550 in Hybrid CrossfireX)
ASUS F75 Motherboard
It is an entry level system and you could make it better my dropping the monitor and buying more and faster RAM (on Fusion systems RAM speed increases graphics performance) e.g. 2x4GB @ 1600MHz.
