Dirty and noob start of the sentence
If you are self-assemble, £800 will give you something like this

If you want to buy one, probably this

However, I personally have reservation for running GTX 1060 on 350W PSU.

If you were to do either which would you personally do?

I build, but then I'm a hardware enthusiast so I end up with all sorts of wierd bits inside.

If you're only bothered about the results and have no interest in the stuff inside the box then I'd recommend buying. Dell occasionally have some decent deals.

How much of the PC do you need? Do you need peripherals like a screen, keyboard and mouse or just the base unit itself?

If you want the whole thing then you want an AMD RX 560, 570 or 580, Freesync Monitor, at least 8GB of memory and at least 240GB of storage. Don't bother with nVidia cards if you're buying a screen at the same time, the results aren't as smooth.

I’d like to get into the whole building side of things I’d only really need a mouse and keyboard
Edit* I don’t need a monitor is what I mean

I usually build myself.

It may end up slightly more expensive, but it is mainly due to I pick decent quality components, not the cheapest one.

I like both of your suggestions is one way better than the other? Or if it just down to building? And is either one easier to add newer bits to further down the line?
ebuyer.com/816…008 Like what’s the difference between the build you sent and this one? Can I hook up hdmi? When I was looking to build I didn’t see the word hdmi? Or does it come under another word?

Is it just the novelty of slotting the stuff together or there is particular hardware that interests you? If it's the latter it's best to start with what you fancy and then the rest of the build can be constructed around that, or we can tell you if it's too expensive for your budget and will compromise the use too badly.

Adding stuff to any system is generally only possible in the first couple of years, but unless you're keeping up with the cutting edge you won't need to upgrade that soon.

Cases and power supplies can be reused but only if you want the same sort of machine next time. If this is your first build you may want to try different things in future.

I’d definitely say it’s the putting stuff together but with an interest, so like Lego I like to build it then have a gander at what I’ve built if that makes sense?
Ahh okay so as long as I say get the right spec to play the likes of far cry 5 or something fairly high then it should be okay until some new wave of super spec games get released?

My OC’d Ryzen 1700 and GTX1080 pull 300W from the wall. A 1060 will be fine.
Can economise on the OS by using a cheap ebay key, or one of the more reputable key resellers (dearer than ebay)

Is the os what ups the prices of both prebuilt and making?

Not really, Windows costs around £90 so it's typically well down the list of most expensive parts.

There's just a thing where some people are just happy to pay an extra £90 on the hardware for nebulous 'future proofing' they might never use but baulk at paying that for the software they're using every day.

I see, so it’s neither here or there?
