£700 Budget Build or Buy Gaming PC

So i have a budget of £700 and some basic skills at building a computer so i was wondering is there a point to building a PC for a budget like this or would it just be better to buy one and avoid any issues? Any suggestions are appreciated. Also if you have any suggestions on what builds i should use or what PC's to buy it would be extra helpful.

Not sure if this is needed information but im not looking for it to run the most hardcore games just little things like Minecraft LoL SMITE.

    it is little more than your budget but it is worth for this better gpu. It can play every game on high settings on 1080p.
    But if you want to decrease price then you can go with gtx 660 or ti version.
    I hope it helps.
    Thank you.
