The budget is a little tight. Here's one direction you could go:

It will play Fallout 4 on lowered settings and/or a lowered resolution. It won't perform better than modern consoles at the moment, but you could upgrade it later. Although, if you really want to build with future upgrades in mind then I would make different part selections than these.

I will be upgrading parts in the future as I may be getting spare £500 in the next few months to use on the computer so would you be able to give me a rough idea on what to upgrade to play latest games on higher quality ? Thanks

If you plan on upgrading soon, you should try to go ahead and get either a good CPU or a good GPU. Otherwise you will be scrapping both in a few months. A Haswell or Skylake i5 (3.2GHz or greater) will be a solid gaming CPU. GPU-wise, you want to shoot for a GTX 960 or R9 380 if you want to hit high settings in new release games.

It's probably better to buy a good motherboard and CPU first and add a GPU later.

i would not recommend buying all the parts and few months upgrading them, because then you will pay the parts you upgrade almost twice. I would wait till you got all your money you want to spend on the new pc and then buy parts which don't have to be sorted put in the near future.
