Hi there I'm looking to build a small pc mainly for use as a media centre and for simple usage like internet browsing etc, I have a budget of £500-£600 and I need just a tower. I am located in Manchester uk.

I believe you said you already have the Nano S. In that case, go for this for a media center.

If you don't already have the case, go for an i5-7500 to stay in budget.

That's a MicroATX board. It will not fit in a Mini ITX FF case.
