Hello guys, first time posting here so please take it easy on me. Anyway, i'm looking to build a new computer primarily for gaming, i want to be able to play games like Fallout 4 and BattleFront on max settings (wishful thinking i know but i can dream right?) and currently my computer is utter rubbish. So i'm looking to build a new one from scratch furthermore, this will be the first time i have built a computer and is the reason i'm looking for help as obviously i have no idea what the best parts are, which parts correspond together and how to get the most out of my money, which i can maybe push to £800. I'm really in the dark here so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for anyone willing to take their time and help me on this one.

Bad PSU choice. G1 units are tier 3.

+1 Hades build but with windows 8.1 - the z3 plus is the best budget case on the UK market IMO.

The amazon link for the antec hcg 620 comes up as a vp450 listing but with 620m pictures & specs.
Buyers are confirming they're receiving the 620m though which for £38.99 is a ******* steal - I may chance a couple of these myself.

With Win 10 dropping soon, for free, for Win7 and Win 8 users, it really doesn't matter which one you get now. Just whatever is cheapest.

Splendid

I heard that Windows 10 is pretty glitchy right now though.
