My finalised specs go as follows:
CPU: AMD FX-6300 £84.99
GPU: Asus Radeon 7790 1GB £89.98
RAM: Kinsington HyperX 4GB 1600MHZ DDR3 £30.10
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500gb £39.39
PSU: Corsair CX430 £33.02
Monitor: Acer G196HQLB 18.5" 1366x768 £70.46
Peripherals: Logitech G400s, QCK+ and Dell KB552 £48.48
Motherboard and case:
Fractal design core 1000 and Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 for £66.54 and a total
build cost of £464.45
Sharkoon VS-3S £25.99 and MSI 760GA-PF3 for £42.03 for a total build cost of £465.94
So do I go for the ATX option or the mATX option? Also are all my components compatible? I think they are I just want someone to check and if you want to recommend any other components please bear in mind that strictly speaking my budget is £450 which, as you can see, I have already gone over. Thank you in advance.
Go with a normal mid atx computer case.
Most mid atx towers can hold normal atx and microatx motherboards.
Along with your vga card and whatever else you may install.
Airflow and sturdyness is what you want in a computer atx case.

10.00 less than the fractal design case you were looking at.
0.5mm or higher on metal cases is a plus but cost abit more on some computer cases.
