After watching videos of the 6100 i3 and finding out its better then the 6300 and 4 gen Intel i3 processors can anyone make me a build? Thanks 750/370 is an okay limit to go up to.It must include an SSD.

P.S are building in Micro AtX cases hard? And will they get optimal air flow?

Yes that SSD does make exceed the budget :/

anyway, to answer your question, no, building in micro ATX cases isnt particularly hard, i suggest just installing the psu first, then the mobo/cpu/gpu/HDD ...

And yes, i got a 380 in there :)

Really liking this one I may swap out the 380 and put a 950 and spend the rest on a CS550W Psu

Alright, just keep in mind the 950 is not as good a video card as the 380...

No but it is £40 cheaper to fit the budget ^

With a fully modular PSU it shouldn't be too bad to build.

Building in MicroATX cases isn't hard, just a little more cramped. Airflow will be adequate unless you're trying to squeeze in several graphics cards or something, which won't be the case in a budget-oriented build.

I Ok so this isn't as graphically powerful as the others with 380s but a 950 will run almost any game a 380 can just not as well but the reason I went for it is so I could fit the 6600 (for some reason cheaper than the 6500) an i5 will be a much better investment as games are using 4 cores much more and will last you for a much longer time than an I3 so if you upgrade the graphics card there will be no bottleneck.

This went a little over budget and there isn't a huge amount of storage but it's so cheap to get a hard drive right now you can pick up another if you feel it's not enough.

Gold rated power supply so it's hopefully not going to fail you any time soon.

For the case I went with a very inexpensive one but it has good reviews and I'm sure you'd much rather have more power at this price point.

Any questions ask. This should last you a long while and the only thing you'll have to do is upgrade the graphics card in the future if it gets too weak.
