I'm looking to start playing on PC and I have a budget of 400 GBP! I know nothing about pc and as Its my first time I just want it to be like a starter PC. So if anyone can suggest a decent tower for 400 gbp or if someone can put the parts together to match the price I could build it?.

I will be using the pc for gaming and general use (games like H1Z1) I also need a mouse and keyboard I don't need a monitor or operating system.


Thanks guys

Do you need a monitor and keyboard/mouse? Also what will you be doing on the PC? Gaming or simply browsing the web

Buy a cheap kb/mouse for now. I've got to say though, I really recommend waiting another month. Kaby Lake has been announced and should be releasing by the end of this month.

Specifications of the Pentium G4500 in the list above and the Pentium G4560 which is part of the Kaby Lake line up releasing soon. As you can see, the G4560 has a lower RRP than the G4500, and has HT.
