I guess people can post their build and we might get improvements to their PCs in replies, I made this just for myself but if we can get a small community of people improving other people's PCs that would be cool.
I've posted mine before, but it's a (really dang small) budget PC made to play some games.
Processor: AMD A10-6800K 4.1GHz Quad-Core Processor Memory: Crucial Ballistix 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Hard Disk Drive: 500GB - 7200 RPM Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-D3H ATX FM2 Optical Drive: Lite-On 24x CD/DVD Burner Case: NZXT Source 210 Elite (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case Power Supply Unit: 450W Operating System Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)
This totals to £~470 ($712 according to Google). (Also planning on putting a graphics card in when possible) Can anyone improve it whilst not increasing the price?

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1mZKp You might have to switch some parts out since I'm using US sites, but for $700 you can definitely build a system similar to this one for $700 I would only suggest getting an APU for builds under $400.

I don't know how well it transfers overseas but for $800 you can get a 4570/760 build, the 760 is $250 or so depending on the model so dropping it for time being would put you at around $550. The HD4600 is 70-90% as (graphically) powerful as the 6800k depending on the game while being literally twice as fast on the CPU side of things. Provided the prices transfer well you could also bump that up to a 4670k and z77 board and still be comfortably under $700 since you're planning to add a gpu later.
