I have decided to build my first computer and decided to come here looking for help. I have a budget of £500 and need everything including an operating system. The only parts i wont need are a monitor and keyboard/mouse. I have no preference about where i buy the parts at but they must be able to deliver to Northern Ireland.

I would mostly be using the computer to play games but will also be used for day to day use. Some of the games i would be looking to play would be Skyrim, Fallout games and Mass Effect games to name a few.

Would i be able to afford a decent gaming pc on this budget and if not what price would i be looking at? I hope this is enough information for you to use and thank you for reading.
