    Gaming Desktop PC £300-£400

    I'm looking for just a desktop in the £300-£400 range, although can go a little over.
    Has to have quad core, at least 4gb ram and HDMI input. Graphics card should be able to play latest games at medium-high settings. Mainly using this for watching 1080p videos and gaming. Thanks in advance!
    Edit: (can be without OS)

    Is that including OS? If so its not going to happen, you will have to make some compromise. If it's for gaming you need to be looking at least a HD 5750 which will eat up £100 of your budget. If I were spending this kind of money I would base it round an overclocked E6500 and 3gb of ram.

    Hi, yes you're right, although this is not including OS.

    Chuck these numbers in Ebuyer. The should come in about £430 and should give you a decent all round rig once overclocked. 190258,174506,176157,152225,188958,143844,183979, 222310.

    You may want to shop around a bit for better prices.

    I'm sure he can read or at least follow youtube videos!:)

    The other advantages of self build is a better balancing of your system. You wont find low end PC's where the GPU is 25% of the price.

    Also you tend to get longer warranties with a self build as components often come with between 2-5 years warranty. Also if upgrading you will get a better price for a boxed item.

    Slow processor for gaming, no overclock ability and the graphics card is not good for gaming.

    Am considering building it. Would those be all the parts I need? Will there be any screws or cables I'd need to get? Wonder what price those components would translate to in a readymade desktop. Would there be much of a difference? Lastly, if I chose a different component how would I know if it's compatible overall?

    I have my pc for sale/trade - ticks most of the boxes
