Gaming/Rendering PC UK within £450

Hey! I was going to buy a PC as I do Media Studies, but at the same time I enjoy playing games like CoD:BO3, CS:GO, WoW etc. So I was wondering if it would be possible to build a PC that could run the games at mid-high settings at like 40+ FPS? I don't know if that would be possible, but I also have a 2.5'' 500GB HDD, so maybe it could be used in the PC? I do not need a keyboard/monitor/mouse as I have those already. I realize that buying a prebuilt PC isn't gonna be possible at the price of £450, so I will try to build one myself.. Thank you guys beforehand..

Ask retailer to flash the bios on the motherboard to the latest version to support the CPU.

Would it be possible to add a Graphics Card later and which ones would be compatible? I do need the PC for video editing/rendering for my studies and I would need it to be capable to render 720p and 1080p films at 30fps..

yes basically all, you should be fine with that for simple 1080p 30fps films.

May seem like a silly question, but by 'the retailer' in this case you mean Ebuyer, right? I just do not want to buy the parts and THEN realize that I've missed something..!

Forgot to mention, but an OS is not needed. I have Win 8.1 Pro on an USB.
