There are people in our forum who will offer help and advice. I freely admit that I am no expert when it comes to gaming machines, but I'm sure that someone will come up with an opinion.

Your motherboard is an Intel one and therefore wouldn't work with an AMD processor. For that CPU you need an AM4 Socket board. They usually have B450 or B350 in the title depending on the chipset.

I addition to that you have chosen a micro-ATX case and a full size ATX motherboard which will not fit. You need to be much more thorough when researching and choosing parts or, better still, buy ready made and leave self-building until you have more knowledge behind you.

If I buy a pre built one will I get one that's gonna be good enough for around £400 I preferably want something that can play resident evil 2 will that be possible? Also can I buy prebuilt with the option to upgrade parts in the future?

To be honest for what you want you are looking £800 minimum as previous posts have stated some of your components are incompatible and you don't appear to have factored in O/S keyboard mouse display

mid range offering but would still need a display keyboard and mouse click here
