New Pre built, £800-£1000 budget.

Hello chaps.
As a bit clueless when it comes to specs so I'm hoping someone on here can give a bit advice.
So my current pc is packing up, had it around 8-10 years from pc specialist ( with a few upgrades along the way) and was only around £700-800 at the time so I guess that in itself tells you I don't necessarily need a super duper machine for what I do.
I looked into building one myself but apart from the hassle of building it, it seems with GPU prices I'm better off going prebuilt.

I'll be mainly using it for gaming. Not extreme gaming, mainly things like Warhammer total war, not really a FPS guy. I will be requiring it to come with Windows.
Basically I'm looking for someone to point me in the direction of the best bang for my buck at that price range. Ideally I'd stay around £800 rather than 1k. I'm getting spammed by a ton of smaller companies on FB but unsure how many of these are legit. Bigger company would be safer I guess but happy to go with anywhere that has a good rep and good value for money. UK based.

Thanks guys.

The UK has a lot of prebuilt companies ... too many to list. TBH though you could build it yourself and come out with a better rig. Also check out Scan UK .. didn't link them but they have a pretty good reputation.

Should have probably added but my most recent purchase for my pc was a PSU just over a year ago
650W Seasonic Core Gold GM-650 80PLUS Gold, Single Rail, 54A, 120mm Fan, ATX PSU.

With that in mind do you think I'm better off building my own?

That knocks 63 quid off that build I posted which keeps you under £1000 with an RTX 3060. Get the free version of Windows 10 64 bit off of the MS site. You can upgrade to the free version of Windows 11 after they get the kinks worked out.
