Hi, as you can see in the title I want to buy or build my own gaming PC.
At the max my budget is £400 (I know that's small but that's all that I can afford right now)
I have my own monitor, mouse and keyboard and also operating system

Anyway I was wondering if someone could help me try and find a computer or parts for a computer where I can play on maybe medium settings (but I don't mind playing on low settings) for games such as Skyrim or Battlefield 4. Please remember my budget is £400.

I also have no preferences for it (except for it to be a desktop PC

Also I had my eyes on this

but im not sure if it is any good or not
