Default New Budget PC

Hi, i am looking to buy a new computer. It will be used everyday for 10-20 hours.
I am going to watch 1080p movies, videos and play some games. Not hardcore games , just games such as Fifa and so on. I have already got a good Hard drive so i am going to use that one.

Here is what i have come with so far.

System Case : http://www.amazon.co.uk/437-16-Micro...199061&sr=1-16

Motherboard : Amazon.com: MSI LGA1155/Intel H61 (B3)/DDR3/A and GbE/MicroATX Motherboard H61M-P31 (G3): Computers & Accessories

Processor : Intel Celeron Dual-Core G530 2.4 GHz Processor with Socket 1155, L3 2Mb, Sandy Bridge, 32nm: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories


Ram : 4GB kit (2GBx2), 240-pin DIMM, DDR3 PC3-10600 upgrades for MSI (Micro Star) H61M-P31 (G3) Motherboard, CT3277336 from Crucial.com

DVD RW : SAMSUNG SH-S222BB/RSMS Internal SATA DVD Writer at cheap prices | Pcworld

Fan : http://www.amazon.co.uk/Startech-Coo.../dp/B006K25OE4

Speakers : http://www.amazon.co.uk/Logitech-X-1...7202363&sr=1-1


Graphic Card : SAPPHIRE ATI Radeon HD 5450 PCI-E Graphics Card - 1GB at cheap prices | Pcworld

Will these components be compatible with each other.
Is there any better components i can get for same price?
Please tell

Celeron processors are the bottom of the barrel and that 5450 isn't much better than an IGP really. You would be able to watch movies and that's about it with that particular setup.

What is your budget? I would also like to say that Newegg is a much better place to buy PC parts.

Dang is that like a 200 $ Computer? I would just go out and buy a PC from a store for 2-300 bucks if all your getting is this stuff.

I could be wrong, but is there any need for a new fan/heat-sink? I would have thought the stock fan would be enough, since it can't be overclocked (or can, but with a lot of difficulty).

I will leave that to the more experienced people around here to confirm, but maybe that £17 extra could be spent on a different processor or graphics card?

You're correct.
