Need help selecting parts for a new pc build

Fizzz

I'm new to building pc's and I need help in deciding which parts to use. My budget is about £400 and I want to be able to run games like CS:GO maxed out at around 100+ fps, and also run games like battlefield 4 on medium settings.

I also need parts which are available in the UK

Why does everyone forget the OS in these budgets?

  • Some AMD A78 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Kaveri CPUs.
  • The Fractal Design Core 1000 USB 3.0 MicroATX Mid Tower Case supports video cards up to 350mm long, but video cards over 210mm may block drive bays. Since the XFX Radeon R9 380 4GB Double Dissipation Video Card is 234mm long, some drive bays may not be usable.

Also, add Windows 10 Home Full (£84.90 @ morecomputers.com)

 

New total: £477.41

Maybe if you want to trust some random on reddit for a code that may or may not work...
