Hello, my friend would like to build his first pc but I can't find a good price for him on PCPartPicker. He has a budget of £400 and it can't go over £450. Please can someone pick me out parts including a black, case with a side panel if thats possible. He wants to play almost every game medium-high 1080p 60fps. Thanks in advance!

For gaming you may want to save a bit more so you are not buying things twice. You need a bit better CPU and video card to run things at a steady 60fps at medium at high settings for newer games. Another 100 saved should do it so you can at least upgrade the CPU to a Ryzen or i5 model.

Cheaped out on the case and that gpu might even only play latest game at low,but it's a better starting point.

Wrong currency for this build, needs to be Euros not Pounds.

Have read that first post truly well no?

And yes that is the symbol for British Pounds, if you haven't figured that out.

Thank you I saw the Euro symbol instead of Pound. That would have changed my build as it would have allowed a 25-30% budget increase.
I was satisfied because I simply changed it to uk prices and it was a few pence difference. On amazon all the parts in the uk are the exact same prices

While the difference between those parts isn't much, there are difference parts that could be used to make the system better overall.

My mistake on reading the currency is the difference between a 2c/4t CPU and a 6c/12t CPU.
