Hi so I'm not entirely clued up when it comes to PC building, but i am trying to purchase one currently through pcspecialist.co.uk where you pick the parts and they Build for you.

So my budget for the PC is 700GBP.. 800GBP at complete maximum as i am having to purchase this through finance (hence the website choice)

I am looking to use the PC for Gaming but not too intense.. and possibly Graphics Design on the side.
I recently got perm banned on Xbox resulting in the loss of all of my games. Which is why I'm making the move. The main games i am looking to play are:
GTA V
CSGO
Player Unknown Battlegrounds
Ark: Survival Evolved
Arma 3
Rainbow Six Seige.

I am looking for a nice case also with LED's.. simply because they look nice af lol.
Now, I have used the site to mock up a PC, and was wondering if their will be any problems with it, like i said I'm not looking to have anything too expensive and this is what I managed to build for 780GBP.


Case
InWIN GT1 BLACK GAMING CASE
Processor (CPU)
Intel Corei3 Dual Core Processor i3-7100 (3.90GHz) 3MB Cache
Motherboard
ASUS PRIME B250-PLUS: ATX, LGA1151, USB 3.1, SATA 6GBs
Memory (RAM)
8GB Corsair VENGEANCE DDR4 2133MHz (2 x 4GB)
Graphics Card
3GB NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 1060 - DVI, HDMI, 3 x DP
Hard Disk
1TB SATA-III 3.5" HDD, 6GB/s, 7200RPM, 32MB CACHE
DVD/BLU-RAY Drive
24x DUAL LAYER DVD WRITER R/RW/RAM
Power Supply
CORSAIR 350W VS SERIES VS-350 POWER SUPPLY
Processor Cooling
INTEL STANDARD CPU COOLER
Thermal Paste
STANDARD THERMAL PASTE FOR SUFFICIENT COOLING

Now I have heard the i3 7100 will bottleneck the GTX 1060? If so this brings me on to whether you guys think i should pair an i5 7400 (3GHz) with a GTX 1050Ti? Or stick with what ive chosen? Or go down the AMD CPU route... its so freakin hard for a noob to understand lmfao.

Ive been sat every day for the past week thinking what to do as wherever I look it seems like everyone debates what will bottleneck, what gpu will be best with what cpu etc etc lol.

Thanks guys. Like I say ive always been a console player. And have no clue when it comes to PC gaming, theres so much to think about lol.
