It's rubbish with slow integrated graphics and no dedicated graphics card.

Motherboard ASRock FM2A88M EXTREME4+ Micro ATX FM2+ £48.43
Memory Crucial Ballistix Elite 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 £62.99

CPU AMD A10-6800K 4.1GHz Quad-Core £95.99
Motherboard ASRock FM2A88M EXTREME4+ Micro ATX FM2+ £48.43
Memory G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-2133 £77.22
Storage Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM £39.98
Case Zalman ZM-T1 MicroATX Mini Tower £29.59
Power Supply EVGA 500W ATX12V / EPS12V £39.92
Total: £331.13

To this second build add a R9 270 or better graphics card as soon as you can afford it. Currently it runs integrated graphics (HD 8670D) about as strong as a HD 7570 dedicated card. This is not great for gaming but will get you by for a little while as you save up to add in a real GPU like the first build has.

gtx 260 is an old card, dx10 limit and high wattage for a weaker card

It old & used. You really should just build one.

They're aimed at people who have no knowledge of building/Don't want to build because of conveniance or time. Have a look at some tutorials on Youtube (Tek Syndacite, Linustechtips, Motherboardsorg) are some good youtube channels to start with.
