Lurked here for about a year now, and thought I'd finally create an account. I have a question, and what better place to ask it than people who play games a LOT? haha, anyway. I need your expertise!
What I need to ask is this. How good is this PC? and could I find something better/as good for a cheaper price?
Let me know! Thanks guys! :)

RAM: 8GB 1333Mhz DDR3 RAM
Motherboard: Gigabyte 78LMT-S2P

Has a crap video card ($79 new) and motherboard ($49 new) and the case is like $50. CPU $139 new and the memory depends on the manufacturer, best estimate $50. I'd pass on it because you could build from scratch and get by cheaper and have a better PC, but that's my just my opinion.
You serious? Link me to those prices! Haha

You can browse around this site and find some great deals.
Do they ship to the UK? :)
And what would you suggest I buy instead of the current MB and GPU?

Stay away from the AMD FX chip line. You'd better off getting a Phenom II X4 or X6 than an FX.

I know I'm a cheeky bastard, but you guys seem like you know what you're on about (I haven't a clue - I know laptops a bit, but desktops are a whole differen't animal).
Could someone recommend a set up that costs between 450-800 dollars (300-500 GBP)?
I'd really appreciate it! :) Guild wars 2 is coming up soon, and I wanna PC that's ready to handle that, ARMA 2+3, and more!

Intel Core i5-2500K ($220)
