AD4M wroteJust curios. What would £750 get my friend if he was to build it himself?

Request still stands, just need PC parts. Thanks

It depends on the monitor that will be used with the system. Honestly, if it's just a 1080p60Hz monitor and it was me, I probably wouldn't even spend much more than 600 quid, I'd just build it myself. £600 is plenty for a decent 1080p rig if you don't buy a pre-built. If I was spending any more than that, I'd invest in a decent monitor for the system. You can pick up decent 1080p144Hz monitors for under 150 quid easily these days.

I'd start with this;
PCPartPicker Part List

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600 (12nm) 3.2 GHz 6-Core Processor (£112.40 @ Alza)
Motherboard: ASRock B450M Pro4-F Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard (£67.58 @ Amazon UK)
Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory (£60.98 @ Amazon UK)
Storage: Crucial BX500 480 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive (£54.70 @ Box Limited)
Video Card: Zotac GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER 6 GB Twin Fan Video Card (£213.48 @ Ebuyer)
Case: Phanteks Eclipse P400A ATX Mid Tower Case (£57.67 @ Ebuyer)
Power Supply: SeaSonic S12III 500 W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply (£50.47 @ Scan.co.uk)
Total: £617.28

and then if you're going to spend any more, I'd really look at adding a monitor like this;

If you already have something better than a 1080p60Hz monitor to use, and/or really want to spend £750, then you could do something like this;

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor (£147.59 @ Amazon UK)

Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory (£60.98 @ Amazon UK)

In either case, you get a better motherboard. Then you get a better CPU+SSD, or a better GPU.
