I need a gaming PC, budget is 600£. Location is UK, i dont need any storage as i have a 4TB WD Black lying around here doing nothing. Dont need a monitor nor peripherals. I can overclock if that would be beneficial however i dont mind having a locked CPU such as the i5 4460. Leaning towards intel LGA1150 CPU's because theyre semi-cheap and have great upgradeability.

Good luck :)

Something like that. There are cheaper boards but you can overclock the locked chips with Z170 boards currently so something to think about later maybe.
