Your budget is 500 Pounds? +-
You want just the PC no peripherals ?

What do you expect out of this PC? What games you want to play ? at what settings ?
Bluetooth ? Wireless ?
Do you run any software on it ? Video rendering ?

Any color theme ? RGB ?

CS:GO and LoL can run on a toaster, BF1 will require something a little more powerful. Some further input is definitely requires such as what games you want to play, and if £500 needs to include keyboard, mouse and monitor?

Any size limits on the case?

Its debatable to ever say an i5 is superior for gaming these days lol. BF1's minimum requirements is an i5 6600K or five year old FX 6 core

No one should buy an i5 these days for gaming, the growing trend now is more threads.

I7 7700k has 4 cores 4 threads..
Ryzen 1900x has 8 cores 16 threads...

Intel is still king when it comes to gaming therefor your assumption might be right for "future-proof" but not as of now.

And a Ryzen 3 is debatable better than that I5...but not in that specific configuration.

Theres no doubt the i7 is the current king of gaming performance.
But you dodnt say i7, you suggested an i5 which are pretty much defunct items now lol.

I was just showing an example proving what you said about cores and threads in the previous post was wrong (From my point of view)
That I5 has same cores as that Ryzen 3...with better OC scalling... better Dram OC ....better IPC.....integrated GPU...

In that specific configuration / price... the I5 is better...
If we put that Ryzen 3 in a different configuration.. it beats the i5.

Apology!

Just saw I added the wrong CPU on the list...
Was supposed to be the i5-6600K not the i5-7400

Edited the list to reflect the change...

Pretty close to the £500 budget and features a 1050 Ti along with 240Gb SSD.
At most, you may need to add a couple of fans. Plus an operating system.

Clearly superior for gaming..Doesn't contain a GPU and will need to be added later...

Those two items do not go together at all.

So your $630 gaming build is actually closer to a $1k gaming build.

why not get an a12 cpu on the b350mobo ?

you can save on the gfx card and then up the ram

since its just a second /portaable pc dont buy new parts buy used ones.

also theres no operating system listed so your going ot need ot factor that in as well
