thanks for the reply, just one question, between the cases which would you say is the best?

the source supports bigger cpu coolers and has sturdier construction. the other two have more modern features and better hard drive bays.

so just wondering, if i was to increase the budget for a case to £55 or £60 would you still say these cases or different ones?

the fractal arc midi R2 is around 62 pounds. the NZXT Source 530 and fractal core 3500 window should be in that range as well.

Core V1 is pretty awesome for its price but its an ITX unfortunately. Why are you stuck on ATX?

I guess the ATX and source would be a lot cheaper due to MOBO price and more upgradeable.

i just went with ATX as it the "normal" choice when building a PC for the first time

That is probably safe. Better airflow and room for upgrades.
