What might she use it for ? Likely to connect it to a TV ? Would she require a DVD ?

if would be normal internet surfing, photos storage, not so much for gaming. wont be connecting to a tv. not sure about a dvd, but dont think so

thanks you
just checked, yes it would need to have a disc drive/dvd drive in it
For surfing but non-gaming at £400 you will probably find a laptop-based solution is far more flexible that a static PCbox+monitor config.
she showed me this one, but was thinking you could get better for the money?

That machine is garbage. You can get a laptop more powerful than that for the same price.

I thought she needed a DVD drive and wanted to store photos? That has no drive and not much storage.

Does it have to be a desktop or can it be a laptop?

If no gaming is involved it makes more sense to go with a laptop.
she would like a desktop

OP want full set up around 400.
You only have 300 for tower as you need to allow at least 100 for monitor, keyboard and mouse

Yep, totally forgot the monitor, my bad. Definitely difficult to have everything for under £400.
Could give laptops a try with the stuff you want for a full package. box.co.uk/lap…450

This was back before 2020, so prices vary now.
Also you need to add Windows10 OperatingSystem and add a keyboard mouse from eBuyer for around £10 including delivery, ebuyer.com/192…303
