Budget (including currency): £800

Country: UK

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Heavily modded Minecraft, Rocket League, Dead by Daylight is about it really

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 

No extra peripherals needed. My first build!

You're choosing to build a pc at a time where the prices are very high, due to low stocks of parts (covid related) and inflated video card prices due to mining. 

 

800 pounds is a bit low and will result in compromises.

 

Here's a build that's decent and costs less than 500 pounds, leaving you with 300+ pounds to buy a decent video card on the used market ( buy a RX570 , RX580,  1060,  2060 etc).

It's stupid to buy a new RX 580 at 450 pounds when it was selling used a year ago for less than 200 pounds.

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor  (£172.99 @ Box Limited) 
Motherboard: MSI B550M PRO-VDH WIFI Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard  (£74.98 @ Amazon UK) 
Memory: Crucial Ballistix 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 CL16 Memory  (£71.98 @ Amazon UK) 
Storage: Western Digital Blue SN550 500 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive  (£51.97 @ Amazon UK) 
Case: Cooler Master MasterBox Q300L MicroATX Mini Tower Case  (£42.96 @ Laptops Direct) 
Power Supply: EVGA BQ 650 W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply  (£55.47 @ Amazon UK) 
Total: £470.35

 

The B550 chipset boards only work with 4xxx and 5xxx processors with integrated graphics.

An alternative would be to get a B450 chipset based motherboard and a 3200g  and use the integrated graphics, but you'll make it harder to upgrade in the future. 

 

Another alternative would be to go for an intel cpu with integrated graphics

Here's a build with Intel cpu  ... it's a bit more expensive because also upgraded ssd and it requires separate cpu cooler (amd comes with good stock cooler)

It's ridiculous, a 2060 in oct/nov last year was 300 pounds, now its 430-500.

Thank you both of you. Very helpful! I was aware the prices were a tad higher, wasn't aware they were this absurdly high!

You'll need to use the iGPU for the time being and wait for stock to arrive.

Would this be capable of running modded Minecraft do you think? I could do with just that until I can get a proper GPU at some point. Doesn't have to be absolutely maxed settings or anything, just playable.

You should be able to play it at lower settings with the iGPU, but i don't know how much you'll be modding it.

Maybe something like this?

 

Youll have to use the igpu for now

To make it more tolerable

Overclock the igpu via bios or xtu and overclock the ram

 

K cpu cause it was only 5£ more and even if you dont oc it, itll have a better resale value than the non k variants
