This is a little out of the 'budget' price range. I remember that the previous article was a Pentium g3258 at a

much cheaper price. Found this from a recommended proper budget build:
$59.99Intel Pentium G3258 3.2GHz Dual-Core

$28.99MSI H81M-P33 Micro ATX LGA1150

$36.29Kingston HyperX Fury Blue 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR3-1866

$62.22Samsung 850 EVO-Series 120GB 2.5" SSD

$79.98NZXT S340 (Black/Red) ATX Mid Tower

$0.00SeaSonic 620W ATX12V / EPS12V

This is sooo much cheaper!! Just need a graphics card. He recommends a 380/380x, or 960. We'll see. Think I might just go for what I got last year: R9 270. Budget card of choice seems to be $106.98Gigabyte GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB WINDFORCE
Also adding a Cooler from top as will be overclocking

Bought. Here's what I got:
1 x Intel Pentium Dual Core G3258 3.2GHz Socket 1150 3MB L3 Cache Retail Boxed Processor £45.82
1 x MSI H81M-P33 Socket 1150 VGA DVI 8 Channel Audio mATX Motherboard £25.82
1 x HyperX 8GB 1866MHz DDR3 CL10 DIMM Fury Series Blue £26.65
1 x Ace Black 120mm Fan 700W Fully Wired Efficient Power Supply £14.99
1 x Gigabyte GTX 750 Ti 2GB GDDR5 Dual Link DVI HDMI PCI-E Graphics Card £72.49
1 x Cooler Master Hyper TX3 EVO 3 Heatpipes/1x92mm Fan CPU Air Cooler £16.24

Total: £242.43

Going to yoink an old case from who knows where, saved about £15.00

Saved money on PSU and case. He used stock cooler, I don't trust in them, especially when overclocking!
