Thanks MistuhJ. Does anyone else have any recommendations? :)

Personally I would save the close to £100 on the os and use the free steam os and put the money into the build. You can always get windows at a later date but upgrading your parts would be considerably more expensive than getting windows a little later.

I will be completely new to PC gaming once I build my rig. Don't certain games require specific versions of windows to play them?

Some games do need windows but if you use steam OS it's free and if there are certain games you want on windows you can easily get it further down the line. An £80-£100 os is much cheaper than a £170 cpu and a new overclocking motherboard anywhere from £60+
