Budget As cheap as possible with high quality, maximum is £700.

Location UK.

Use Needs to be good at gaming as well as homework.

Peripherals Required I need a monitor, keyboard and mouse, but I'd prefer to get pretty cheap ones rather than spending half my budget on them.

OS Windows 10 please.

Here's my take on it. You have a more powerful GPU than the other build but a but less processing power. This build should give you better FPS in gaming though and not much of a difference when it comes to homework anyway.
