No problem at all!

Alright here's what you could do:

Install Windows on this little thing (SSD :D) £42: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Kingston-Technology-Solid-State-Drive/dp/B00A1ZTZOG

Then for games and God knows what else stuff it all on a 1TB Barracuda £46: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Seagate-ST1000DM003-inch-Barracuda-Drive/dp/B005T3GRNW/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1474894882&sr=1-1&keywords=1tb+seagate

Then you will have a fast windows boot and also lots of storage for stuff! :D

This would be best for a PC because then you can manage cables properly :)

You will have to buy a copy of Windows that can easily be found on Amazon and you simply put the disc in the machine and tell the PC to boot from the CD and then go through all of the options it gives and it will install windows onto your HDD for you :)

Take a loot at this for guidance on how to arrange the boot order: http://www.howtogeek.com/129815/beginner-geek-how-to-change-the-boot-order-in-your-computers-bios/ :)

I can't be certain if i'll be available when you get your PC, that's the problem :(

But for that question, when you go to install windows it will ask where you want to install it to and it will just be a matter of clicking on the SSD icon then it will install on that drive :)

Leave the hard drive unconnected from the motherboard and it will install on the SSD.
Instead od buying a aftermarket CPU cooler use the stock and and buy the i5 6500 processor the 6400 is rather slow.

Better case, better PSU , slightly better mb, 240gb ssd.
The pau is £47 on amazon, a newer model & much better than the CX 500..
Steer clear of the cx430/500/600 models.

Neither of those builds include the os price mate.
My build is better for £4 more .

How much exactly do you have to spend ??

There are compromises that can be made to keep you in budget if you need the os too.

You will need an optical drive to install windows from disk
