Need advice on building a new gaming PC

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Been a while since I logged onto this site, lol.

 

Thinking about building a new PC for gaming and media. Something that would look good in the front room. I want it to run games at a minimum of 1080p. I'm not new to building PC's having built several in the past. It needs to be a smaller form factor than usual.

 

I've been out of the loop in terms of PC hardware for a while, so please could you guys give me some good suggestions for building a strong rig for gaming between £500 - £800. The cheaper the better. I'm in the UK so no point in basing your prices off of UK sites as they rarely correlate to prices over here.

Thanks in advance.
