My birthday is coming up, and my computer is on it's final legs. My parents will give me money for a new computer, but they won't give it to me if I want to build my own, because they think I'll break it when building it.
I will want the computer, to run Studio One DAW smoothly and reliably, for me to learn to program and for maybe some light gaming (TF2, Minecraft, small indie games) . I don't have a set budget, but I'd like it as cheap as possible, £400 top preferably £200 - £300.
I will need everything apart from a mouse.
Preferably show me a system that costs £400 prebuilt, and an alternative list of parts that costs a lot less but does the same.
