£600 Gaming PC with Monitor and OS

Approximate Purchase Date: In the next week

Budget Range: I am looking to spend no more than £600.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, surfing the web, college work

Are you buying a monitor: Yes

Do you need to buy OS: Yes (Windows 7 preferably)

Location: UK, England

Parts Preferences: I would prefer an Intel CPU, but other than that I have no preferences

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: No

Additional Comments: I am looking for a budget gaming PC for under £600 including a monitor, OS and keyboard and mouse. I am not too worried about maxing out settings and would be happy to play the more demanding games at medium.

I hope you can help me out!

  3. Thank you both for the quick replies! How long do you think this pc would last until I needed to update a few of the parts?
  4. It will play modern games at mid-high settings for about a year or 1.5 years before you have to lower settings to just medium. It would be 3+ years before you are playing at low.
