Audio DAW PC build - Budget under £600?

I'm after an audio DAW PC that is good for handling vst's and effects.
I don't need a soundcard for now as I will do that later on.

But how is this spec? A few people on this forum advised me of this spec, looking to see what I can tweak or change in this spec. Any advice is appreciated.

Budget is ideally £500, but if not possible, can stretch to £600 as want a PC that can last a good few years. My existing one is cack!

  1. the prices and links on there, some of them are outdated, so if anyone can give me some cheaper links that would be great and any other modifications that may make the spec cheaper and better.
