Hello, I need help building a desktop please. The budget is £600. A monitor will also be needed. Uses will be web browsing and office programs, I don't need a graphics card for gaming. I just want the best possible performance for this price, thanks...

Thanks for the replies, i see you have all chosen different ryzen cpu's, which one is the best? Also you have all chosen a micro atx motherboard, is there a reason for choosing this over a regular sized board?

From fastest to slowest CPUs posted in builds so far: 3600, 3300x, 3400g, 3200g. The reason we choose this smaller motherboard is that it is cheap and comes with the updated BIOS required for the 3000 series AMD CPU's.
