Making a build for a friend. Strict £700 budget. He ideally wants it to be as cheap as possible whilst still having decent performance.

He needs it for work and a small amount of gaming.
He works as a 3D environmental artist so does a lot of rendering and can make use of decent CPU performance.

Here's what I had so far:

A bit less storage but that can always be upgraded in the future. 1600 isn't much better then 1500x and this way you get significantly better gpu power.

Yes, it is.

Not only that, but the 1500x doesn't make sense over the 1400 anyway.

Bit cheaper with a good bit better SSD, faster RAM, and semi-modular PSU. If you don't care about modularity, I'd get one of these instead;

Super Flower unit is obviously the best quality but 350W is a bit tight for upgradability, you could get the 450W version for an extra fiver though, if you wanted.
