£400 - £600 Gaming PC (Needs to be as small)

I am looking for a basic gaming PC to start me off, one which I can look to upgrade gradually over the course of the year. I am looking for a case that will be able to hold the Radeon 390 if possible. Would need an OS and ideally an SSD (Though not essential at this time)

You can add an SSD later. I would recommend running SteamOS for now, and upgrading to Windows later.
