Anyone recommend a tower around £700 that can run the game Battlefield competently?
Thanks.

You can build a system that can play that for about £400 with 2nd hand parts
Build one it's cheaper and better also not hard at all. Just look up build for price ranges on YouTube and tutorials too. you can even change around the pieces as long as you make sure the pieces work well together and your power supply is high enough

I’m not tech savvy. Is there a website where I can input builds and what would you recommend on specs?
Battlefield is a series rather than a single game, the first one was Battlefield 1942 and that's a lot easier to run than the latest Battlefield 1.

Is £700 just for the base unit or do you need a screen, keyboard and mouse included in that?
Dell, pc specialist are good for simple tower builds. Which battlefield are you looking to play?

Personally I would wait 1-2 months for new ryzen chips, and either get a new gen set of parts or older parts dort cheap and you spend the extra saving on a better gpu. As long as you have at least a quad core (ideally hexacore or more for battlefield 1), 8gb of ram, the rest is predominantly gpu dependent to have a smooth experience at 1080p. If you check guru3d, most mainstream cards will give you 60fps + at 1080p, which is enough for a smooth gaming experience.

Therefore 250-300 on Cpu and motherboard, 100 on ram, 150 on gpu, 150 on hdd, psu and case should be doable for that money. If you include monitor and peripherals, you are looking at a lower tier quad core and lower tier gpu at least really to reduce the price enough to meet budget.

Thanks for your help. My teenage son wants a new system for his games and I need one for some office work. Your info is gratefully appreciated.
£700 was just for the tower We’ve already got a 4K monitor.

Any time. Just a warning though, gaming at 4k will likely push the Base cost of this tower up a lot (I would estimate at least double your current budget)

Just ask around. Find someone who is computer savvy. Even try your work place/kids school IT dept.
There are a vast amount of youtubers that price out parts for various budget systems. They even build some of them too. Also try PC Partpicker. It lets you choose from various parts and lets you know if there are any compatibility issues.
