Hi, I am a first timer on this with a mediocre amount of knowledge. I wanna build a pc with a budget of ££550-600.However I need help picking out every thing from PSU to Pc case and also operating system.I wanna be able to run demanding games like skyrim and new games aswell.All help is appreciated.

I was going to build this however the price skyrocketed. I was thinking of keeping the gpu. I just got the money together and getting it on friday.

Thats a pretty good build. You will be able to run most games on high settings and get around 60fps @ 1080p .
