Recommend me a driver/drill for common DIY

Looking for a driver/drill that can do most household things. Budget of a around £80. Unsure if thats enough for something that can do what I want or whether I need to spend a little more.

Ideally want it to be able to cope with putting shelves up the house/cupboards/kitchen units, drilling into brick outside to put small light fittings, garden decking/fencing etc

Any help appreciated.

I got something similar to this in a set for about £50 in Feb:

And that more or less hits your budget and does everything round the house

You don't mention if you want corded/cordless, but I'd definitely recommend cordless and Dewalt has never let us down-twin pack is usually on offer somewhere for about £99. If you're not bothered about brands, B&Q own brand corded is a bargain and has served us for years as a cement mixer (with attachment obviously).

Prefer cordless. I understand that there may be less power tho to drill through the tougher stuff using one of these.

I got an 18v cordless makita from B&Q about that price with two batteries, never had a single issue with it. Put up loads of fence panels, built a huge decked area, have wall mounted about 10 tv's, put up hundreds of pictures and built various items of furniture. If I were buying again I'd be happy to buy makita again, had a Bosch and it was pants.

I got a ~£30 bosch corded drill on offer and its been good for putting up shelves, drilling 16mm diameter through brick to fit bike anchor and various other diy jobs. I'm not too sure what the expensive drills offer but I don't do enough to justify spending more as mine has been perfect.
