First Gaming PC Help Please

I am thinking about buying a pc to use for both gaming and general use, I want to spend somewhere in the region of £500. I want the best i can get for the money, i just want the tower and not a monitor or keyboard etc. I was thinking about building myself but that seems like alot of work, is it worth building yourself? If someone could direct me to a particular pc on a site that would be great (preferably a site that does pay monthly). If you think i would save alot of money building myself could someone give me a list of components. I want to be able to run games on full 1080p resolution minimum. thanks in advance, Alex

You will struggle to get a top notch gaming PC for £500. When you consider deducting £70+ for the operating system then you really only have perhaps £425 left. But I will see what I can come up with.

A quick look at a company that has a pretty good reputation found the following.

Pre-Built:

Chillblast Fusion Wolverine.

Chillblast Fusion Firefly.

Nothing between them except one has a Nvidia graphics card the other has an AMD.

I don't think build with your budget is really an option.

OK, how much would I need to spend do you think?

The above two will suite your needs and as more money becomes available then you can upgrade the graphics card (GPU).
