I am building PC soon my budget is £420-520, I will be using that PC for gaming & rendering and editing as I am youtuber with 12k subscribers. I am wondering if this pc will be okay to handle all that? and should games go fine?

Case: BitFenix Comrade Midi-Tower - Black
HDD: 1TB Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 3.5" SATA III Hard Drive - HDD
DVDRW: LiteOn 24x Internal SATA DVD RW Drive [IHAS124-14]
CPU: AMD (Piledriver) FX-6300 3.50GHz (4.10GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 6-Core Processor - Retail
MEMORY: 8GB (2x4GB) Crucial Ballistix Sport 1600MHz CL9 DDR3 Dual Channel Kit
GFX: Sapphire Radeon R9 270X Dual-X Boost OC AMD Graphics Card 2GB Graphics Card
MOBO: Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3P AMD Socket AM3+ Motherboard
PSU: EVGA 500W 80 Plus Power Supply (100-W1-0500-KR)
Total of this is £500

C Chazay on budget by £0.11. :biggrin:

OP: this is better because it has more RAM. The GPU's not the best but it depends on what games you want to play. It can run GTA V but on medium settings. It was a tight fit.

Just needs an SSD added when you can and it'll be great. This is definitely worth a little more than £25 over;

You could save money by getting an i5-4440 instead, and use the money saved to grab the 285. If you o that, you'd have about £30 left so could get a better case and 2TB HDD as well. Like this;

Again, add an SSD when you can.

8GB RAM is fine, but you would probably benefit from adding another 8GB RAM. RAM is the cheapest and easiest component to upgrade though so 8GB will do for now. If you decide you nee/want more, you can just grab another set of 2x4GB RAM and add it to your current 8GB.

It would be better to have better parts all round rather than the 16gbs of ram. Its easy to add more ram but it cost more to get a new CPU and mobo or GPU.

I would go with the i5 build that S Sanctorum did.
