Need a good budget gaming PC (£400-500 budget)

Approximate Purchase Date: The latest I will wait is after the new year.

Budget Range: £400-600 ($643-804)

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, internet, movies, work.

Parts Not Required: Mouse, Keyboard, Speakers

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: N/A. I know Newegg is good but I'm from the UK so cannot buy.

Country: United Kingdom, England

Parts Preferences: I'm not too sure? Whatever you guys think!

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Monitor Resolution: Not too sure.

Additional Comments: Must be able to run games like League of Legends, Skyrim, Battlefield 3, COD4 on medium settings at the least.

PS: I'm a noob when it comes to computers so hence why I'm here. ^^. I tried ordering some parts a while back but apparently according to my room-mate the parts I was going to order wouldn't work together or they would slow my computer down or something like that so please help! :hello:

  1. I really wish you filled up whether you need an OS and a monitor.

    I'm assuming you do though since you didn't include them in the "Parts not required".
  2. Oops missed out on the OS but yeah I do need a monitor.
  3. I see. Will that be part of the budget?

    This one is w/o the OS and monitor.
