    what would be a better idea is this

    tell us budget, and if you need a monitor

    any other details you might want, and let us help you better. picking from just one supplier isnt the best way

    >and some gaming

    This is the KEY phrase in your description.

    Almost ANY PC can be used for web browsing, email, etc etc, but gaming requires very specific graphics capability.

    We need to know WHAT games as the graphics capability of a computer defines what games you can play.

    You can spend between £20 and £250 for a graphics card and you dont want to spend too much for basic games, or too little if you want the latest games.
