If you spend 500 Budget on a computer for gaming you are going to be disappointed.

I would suggest saving up some more money so you can be happy gaming.

500 pounds isn't enough for a gaming rig. If you can raise it up to 750-800 you can get a decent gaming computer.

Right guys I thought over it. I'm going to raise my budget up to 700-800 .

What's a decent enough gaming PC I could build for that budget? If possible could you send links to parts from amazon or UK websites.

Thank you.

You can always try Pick Parts, Build Your PC, Compare and Share - PCPartPicker to choose your parts. I'll make a part list for around 800 pounds and come back.

Would you look at that! I was browsing through my saved parts list and found a build for 482 pounds, there's even a mechanical keyboard, mouse and headphones included. Laith225 - Saved Part Lists - PCPartPicker

I think it will provide you with a decent experience.

Would I not need a fan cooler for this build you showed now? I actually have the budget of 700-800 Pounds so should I get the one you send me the link or upgrade it?

It's your choice if you add some things. Some things i would recommend upgrading is probably the motherboard and PSU. It is recommended also to get a fan cooler if you are gonna overclock. Else just stay with the stock fan cooler.

For 800 you may as well buy a custom build from PC Specialist. I'll knock a build together shortly.
