Hello, all.

 

I am interested in building a computer but I only have a budget of under £500 (GBP) if any of you have time to suggest me good components at a low cost or even a list on amazon etc that has  full build with all components that I would need to build one, thanks for reading and I cant wait to hear your input.

 

Kindest, Regards. Jacob

I have a copy of windows 7 and keyboard and mouse, I would just need a monitor but I'll use my TV as a temporary solution.

Are you going to be using for gaming, home office use, as a Facebook machine, ETC?

99% of the time, I edit for type-o's and grammar. I'll note it if that's not the case. 

I write near essays for most my responses, and then try to condense as best I can to the introduction of one. Less is more. Let me know if I post to much. 

I do a lot of spacing for readability. Let me know if that makes my posts seem to big.

Thanks very much, thankfully all the parts can be ordered on amazon so I can get them to ship to the UK, thanks for that, and because if I choose to go ahead with it, I have £150 left to pay the extra for a better CPU or graphics card etc. Thanks again!

It would be used for gaming and office work, if it can handle games like GTAV then that would be perfect, I know that my budget isnt big enough to make game like GTAV run perfectly
