    Emulation requires processing power. I would go the Intel route with a B75 motherboard, you will be able to just drop in an i3/i5 later if you find the G860 not up to the job. I would go with an i3-3220 from the off, but that would push you over £300.

    The A10 is fine but if you go with the A10 you will be pretty much stuck with very limited ability to improve your CPU horsepower.

    B75 mother board £45
    G860 £50
    Radeon 7770 £85
    Corsair 430CX V2 PSU £36
    Crucial 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1600Mhz Ballistix RAM £15 from Ebuyer
    Generic Case £20
    Seagate 500GB Barracuda 7200 RPM HDD £46

    I make that around £297.
