Steam Console vs Mini PC?


Sep 15, 2015

I have been looking at the Steam Machines for a while now and wish to purchase one. However, I have just realised that they are just Mini ITX towers with Steam OS inbuilt and the Steam logo on it. So now I find myself conflicted as to which one to get, so would like some help deciding. I have been looking at and their range but with the lack of prices and many being barebone it confuses me.

So, to put it simply: Can somebody please link me to a decent (please not bland and not just black) looking Mini Gaming PC which can play games on high (Ultra not needed) with at least an Intel i5 3.2 Ghz and something that is or close to the MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950 2GB 16X PCIe 3.0 Video Card. Please include a Windows 8.1 or higher operating system (I have monitors and accessories already) In other words I want it to run better than a PS4. £500 (Live in the UK) is the maximum price and any lower is greatly appreciated.

~ Full build - No barebone please.
~ Base it off this if it helps:
~ I have seen evidence of gaming builds being cheaper than this but if need be then increase maximum price as conservatively as you can.

Thank You.
