Trying to build a budget PC. Need Help!


Jan 4, 2013
Hi there guys, have spent a lot of time over the past few days trying to understand a bit more about building computers, this will be my first try, so be nice! I am an avid gamer and until I moved to University I could run most games on my pc. Now however I have switched to a laptop that just hates me (and gaming). Being a student I have tried to put together a system that would run games (low-end, i know!) with the potential to buy a gpu in the future. Please look it over and tell me what you think; is it compatible? are there any changes you would recommend? May also be willing to spend slightly more but looking to keep it under the £200 mark. Thanks for looking and reading!
