    hi guys,

    I have been given the last minute task of building my nephew a new PC for Xmas.

    I have not built a system for a while nor watching the HW market since I built my last one 1.5 years ago.

    Could someone please spec me a build with a max budget of £800 - needs to include everything including monitor and kB/mouse.

    you'll have to get creative with windows 10. use your own system to create a media USB boot ISO from and buy a CD Key for £20 odd​

    worth seeing if he can pick up, MSI mortar/Gaming Plus or Aorus Pro for roughly the same price as the ASUS else where

    shipping puts it over the budget, but putting an intel in to the mix, same route with the radeon plus freesync monitor, single 500gb drive but in m.2 form, compact case, i went with a simple k/b + mouse option and as above get windows via iso.

    I went for this first build apart from the motherboard, I got an aorus pro b450.

    Pc is built and working fine now, 1 thing to mention though.

    The Antec case is the worst case I’ve ever built in.....

    If it was my PC it wouldn’t be in it.

    No room to get the psu in because of the HDD bay. You can’t use the ssd mounts inside the case because you can’t get a power cable into it when you have an ATX mobo installed.

    Literally ****.

    That’s everyone for your help.

    Apologies, was the only decent case that could fit within budget unless going for the extremely cheap Kolink, which you might as well get a Dell case from the scrap yard :)

    Don't forget to claim the games and post up picks of the build. Would be interesting to see the case fully built in etc

    Looks like only quoting 150mm and below PSU unit for that case and either budget Kolink units or expensive Focus/Antec ...

    I’ll post up some pics later, I got the psu in eventually but it was a real pain and the cables are bent straight to a 90 degree angle at the back of it.

    im sure the case wasnt that bad, as ive found from my case which seems a similar design, its down to how you go about fitting stuff and the stuff you use, not easy thats for sure, but easily done. anyways you got it up and running thats the main thing.
