I'm using this for gaming, I already have a monitor to use, it's my TV aha.
Most likely it will be on a wireless connection, so do I need a wireless network interface card?

I'm kind of new to this and don't know what else to buy, also feel free to change what I am using, my budget is around £500.

Anyone able to help me out with what I will need?

Looks great!

That mobo does not have built in wi-fi.

Thank you!

If I were to buy a wireless card for wi-fi how much would I bet looking at and what would be the best to buy?

I don't have experience with a PCI card for WiFi, but the USB adapters that you can get for ~$20 work great for my wife.

Best Buy is having a great sale on Logitech stuff right now, you can get a G400 mouse for $30 or a G500 for $40. I have the 400 and love it. As far as a keyboard goes, that's purely personal preference. Just find one you like and go with it. I'm using a cheap Acer keyboard right now and am having no problems.

I was thinking of buying from Best buy but never noticed they shut down in the UK;(

Wow, I didn't know that either, but it makes sense, they are trying to not flounder at this point.
