Dear lovely and extremely helpful community of Tom's Hardware,

Before I ask my question, I would like to say that another question that I asked yesterday got answered so quickly. Normally it takes years to get a response. It's seriously amazing. Well anyway guys let's get back to my question. The previous question I asked yesterday was about buying a cheap computer to do my office work and homework on. I bought that computer. However, now I want to purchase another computer that's much more powerful for gaming. Can anyone recommend me any custom computer ,either on Ebay or any other website located in the UK, for a price around 400 pounds?

Thank you very much,

Now I understand I might look like a leecher that's just asking questions and not sharing anything. I wish I was able to share anything but my computer knowledge is very limited. So forgive me for that.

Yours sincerely,

MI6

400 is honestly a very low budget. It would have made sense to have a gaming one that you can also do office work on.
Anyway.

Would you need to have the price of things like a monitor and an operating system included in the price?

You can downgrade to a 7770 if you'd like for it to be cheaper, and also if you might need an optical drive.

What games are you going to play?

Nothing else except for the base of the computer. Also no operating system.

lchrisk's suggestion was very good for a budget PC. However you'd have to purchase a monitor, operating system, keyboard, mouse on top of that.

Thank you for that website with all the parts. However, does this mean that I have to assemble the computer myself? Seems a very daunting task since I am not a computer engineer. And also it mentions something about the case not having a USB 3.0??? Is that going to be a problem?

It really is just like lego for adults :)  Much easier than it seems and there are plenty of tutorials around ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W4Js2A1qdB8 ).

USB 3.0 is faster than USB 2.0,however they do exactly the same thing. It's not a problem as long as you're fine with USB 2.0 (standard) speeds.
