How come you didn't suggest an SSD, purely due to budget?

yes, but if you want a cheap, yet good SSD i recomend this one: https://pcpartpicker.com/part/a-data-internal-hard-drive-asp600s3128gmc

This SSD should be enough for games and for some storage, if you don't want to go over budget you can get cheaper bronze PSU and 250 GB ssd instead of 500gb.

since you wont overclock this is what you need, the 1231 is pretty much an i7 you cant overclock (hyperthreaded) fancy little motherboard, 16g ram, small ssd and 1t hdd, a 390x is almost as good as the 980 for like $100 cheaper, nice little cooler master case, reliable efficient power supply, good pcie wifi (with bluetooth) and a basic monitor thats 24"

I would prefer an Nvidia card over AMD tbh, and the price difference in the UK is around £40.
