I have started a new build for a friend's son. He wants to be able to play COD Advanced Warfare:
Ideally, the machine would be around the £400 mark - I don't think this is possible having ready COD's recommended specification.

you could use the i5 4590 and save a couple of bucks since it seems the computer won't be overclock. That way you can use the stock cooler, remove the one you have and use that money on something else.
Question - does the 4590 come with the stock cooler? If so, does it come with the paste pre-applied?
Yes, that's why you will not need an aftermarket cooler. Stock cooler will do the job just fine.
Excellent - made those changes. Not 100% sure about the RAM - I am sure we could save a few pennies here - any ideas?
It doesn't show me the price, but how about this sticks of RAM?. It is not color matching, but I hope it is cheaper. You could go for this instead, if you want to keep it color matched.
Sorry - I didn't realise you couldn't see the prices. I have looked through the RAM you suggested and some others - it seems the one I have selected is good value for money. Thanks for your help.
You can take out the cpu cooler and go with a worse gpu and cpu maybe, but aside from that I don't know if there's much cutting down to be done and if it'll actually run COD.
