Looking on building a nice gaming pc, has to be in a small case because space is an issue. Space where the case will sit is roughly 510 x 510 mm.

Budget & Currency: 1,200-1,600 GBP (Less if possible)
Games: Steam source games, LoL, Overwatch, CS:GO?
Aesthetics: Needs to be a small case, preferably white but any colour will do
When: Within the next month or so

Accessories & Peripherals aren't an issue.

£1000-£2000 is a wide range bud.

You need to give us something like £100 range. E.g £1700-£1800.

What monitor have you got? Spending £1200 for a PC to play games at 1080p is a waste. Especially Overwatch, CSGO, and LoL since they're not very demanding games.

When within the month are you buying? If you're not buying for 3 weeks, prices will likely have changed. If you're buying within the next week or 2 at most, then it should be fine.

Will you overclock?

I'm assuming the 510x510 limitation is height and depth? Do you have any limit on how wide the case can be?

What Price Range would you suggest? It'll more likely be bought around a month away due to when I get paid.

The width of the space is pretty much the same as the height and depth as the case will be sitting inside a square shelf thing. I've looked at specs of cases and two that would be fine are the Game Max Proteus Gaming Case and BitFenix Prodigy.

I arranged the price range to what it is because I don't want to be changing anything any time soon and just in case I want to play a more wider range of games.

I'm not too bothered about overclocking, I'd rather just buy, build and go.

Thanks

I have found out the dimensions of the shelf the pc will sit in are 33.7 cm in height, 33.7 cm wide and 38.5 cm deep.
