Is the budget just for the tower and does it include an operating system? Please be aware that hard-drive prices are going through the roof due to the flooding in Asia.

Which comes to around £524.61 including postage.

All items from Scan computing and the LN numbers can be put in the search bar on the site. Obviously a cheaper CPU can be used and also graphics card. But this is not a bad set up given your budget and the need for a gaming PC spec.
