    So what's your question?

    If you're asking how to get one and the 400 in the title is your budget, then I'd advise building one. It's a pretty limited budget though if you want to play games at a high graphical level.

    Check out logicalincrements.com for ideas on parts to budget, but remember you'll also need a monitor (or TV) if you've not got one, mouse, keyboard, Windows licence, etc.

    Windows key £10 from places like reddit, £60 or so for a second hand completely unstressed 750 TI, or splash out on a 1050 ti.

    You'll need a better PSU for anything more meaty.

    ​thanks

    Honestly, mate look for some parts on eBay. I built a PC not including monitor for £320 ish and got some amazing deals, this was back in early 2014. For £400 now you can get some great stuff. Although if you are patient enough wait for Ryuzen, should make prices go down.

    I know its a bit of a lottery but you could look at parts in Amazon warehouse 30off 100 spend area.
    If parts not as specified ask for return or discount.

    I'd go with this instead: uk.pcpartpicker.com/lis…Hqk

    It's an extra £50, but for your money, you get ~50% more processor power, 2x the RAM, an SSD rather than an old HDD (if you need bulk storage, add it later), and a comparable GPU with 4x as much VRAM. It drops a couple of unnecessary components (no point buying an aftermarket HS&F if you're not overclocking, no point buying an optical drive because it isn't 2005 anymore), but you'll not miss them.
