Hi, complete beginner over here, wanting to build a PC for around £350.

I will be starting off using it for just basic tasks but with a view to use it for Adobe creative cloud applications and AutoCAD. In the long term future id like to upgrade it to do some rendering.

Id like it to firstly do the basic internet tasks quickly and reliably, and also handle the design work.

With some basic research I chose these parts, any glaring or subtle problems would be greatly appreciated! Or ANY just general advice really.

I'm a little over budget at the moment but that's not tooo big a problem. If any of the parts seem unnecessarily expensive for what I'm doing id be keen to save a bit.

Thanks!!

Well, in that case, you could balance your list out a little and get some better components

Great thanks a lot. I'll have a detailed look when I can. Very useful indeed!

you don't need the full tower. Will be so much empty space inside especially since you are using integrated graphics. Mid tower will be plenty of space and cheaper.

Thanks I thought that perhaps might be so, I'll make that change. Say in the future I wanted to add more components would the mid tower be sufficient?

yes, a mid tower will be fine to add to in the future as well. Just check how many bays etc. it has when you select one.
