Hi, I need a parts list as I want a PC to game on (1080p), but also do business on. I want it to have an intel i5 or something similar, and at minimum 8GB RAM. I already have a hard-drive and an operating system, but I need a tower case (nothing special, around £30 or less, and the rest of the components for inside. I appreciate all your help in advance. Many thanks.

I'm not a heavy gamer. £400 at a push but that's it.

http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/Wr7rTW - 324 pounds without a GPU, I might be able to squeeze in a GPU on a 400 pound budget.

If you were to remove the hard drive from that, what would it be with the GPU? How about cooling?

I could fit in a 750 ti and the i5 comes with a stock cooler, you dont really need anything fancy.

Could you place that all into a list (Without the hard drive and including the GPU)? Would all these components fit into one of the blue cases with the clear side below £30? Thanks for all your help, appreciate it.

http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/n8YPjX - 387 pounds, any GPU cheaper then that really isnt worth it, unless youre using it for streaming media, youtube, browser games, older games etc.

The 750 ti will play games at medium to high settings.

As long as it has an intel i5 processor, anything else that's up to scratch, reasonably priced will do!
