Has anyone got an idea for a good self design computer website in the uk? My budget is £500-£680

There are a gezillion combinations/permutations possible. You just have to pick the parts that fit your buget and put them together. Here is a 5 part instruction from the Geek when he built a system a few years ago. The parts list may be different today but the basic principles still apply. http://www.howtogeek.com/howto.....-hardware/

When you have questions as to the compatibility and usefulness of the parts you picked, post back with the list and we'll look it over.

Here is a current thread on the same problem that might be useful reading: http://www.howtogeek.com/forum.....replies=18

And to reiterate, times, technology and prices change rapidly. In fact too fast.

A starting point for the most important bits; http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=.....1352649507

Then you got to box it; http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=.....tower+case

Some with PSU some without.

With your budget, look at the above and report back, it can be done.

HDD could pose a problem, sata or ssd but a sata 1tb drive might suffice.

Another point is the purpose of the build, everyday PC usage or gaming?

A game build might break your budget!
