DO not, do not, do not buy..

Tell us your total budget and what you will be using the PC for and we will give you a nice build to buy.

It amounted to £547

But would prefer to go less to be honest, around 450 ish was preferred

Gaming pc is the intent

Just realised this is the wrong topic to post this in, moving it to correct.
