pick up a GPU later on. the iGPU on the 2200G is enough to start with. 

 

also, case is optional if you truly dont care about looks. you can just have the pc on top of the motherboard box with no problems

Missing Keyboard and mouse but you should be able to get some for £20.
Still £50 above the budget but worth the money in my opinion.

 

Nice deal on the Pure Power 11

2200G will be good for gaming and an upgrade in the future is still possible.

8GB Ram in a budget build is sufficient.

240 GB SSD storage is a bit short to be honest but you can always get a cheap used 1tb hdd on ebay or something.

Solid case 

And the GPU is on 1060 performance and will last several years

I would not go Intel at that price point. The AMD lineup under 150 $/£ is just to good price/performance wise. The i3-8100 is 27% more expensive than the 2200G for a 2% performance gain (userbenchmark.com, i know, not absolute and not most accurate). And you can OC the Ryzen 3 a little bit. 

A ok b450/350 Motherboard is still 10 bucks cheaper so over all system cost go further down. The faster ram is also ~10 bucks so it doesn't make a difference at that point.

 

The 40 £ more for the 580 8GB will handle more compared to the 570 4GB especially in new titles in high details if you don't extend 1080p. 

The LG monitor i found is a 75 Hz with freesync. There might be better monitors out there but spec wise it is looking great for that price.

There's literally an RX 580 that goes cheaper than that card, like the one I linked.

I must have miss clicked. Though I had a 580 in that confic because I just scanned for manufacurer/series and vram 8 GB. 

My bad than. 

Didn't even know there are 8 GB 570s out there in the wild.
