I am new to PC building and want to start. I already have a build planned and has done research. I am looking for a mid to low tier pc that can run any game smoothly, I am not too picky about graphics as long as they are not too bad. My budget is £800-£1000 if that is what it needs but lower the price the better. I can show you my current parts I have picked. All I ask is for advice and tips and any suggestions to edit my build. I will be grateful for any help so if you read this and have the time please give me anything to help me. If you have any questions about what I want please ask. I really want to get into pc building and I will also have money later on for upgrades. Thank you for your time.

Thanks a lot for the advice. I did look at that RAM and had it in my build, I also heard the 8gb GPU was pointless and I was unsure about my hard drives. Thank you for the help it is greatly appreciated, I just want a pc to run any game at some decent quality but not to powerful so it stays in my budget. Personally I like blue but that one looks pretty good, I may look around more for cases, but if it does the job and isn't too ugly I don't care. :)

Actually the picture makes it look much better, the photo I saw made it look a bit meh, probably will go with that. Blue has to be my favourite colour but maybe with the extra money I can buy something external that is blue to incorporate in my setup like a blue keyboard etc. Anyway thanks for the help.
