The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
I've been using the same laptop for >5 years now, so it is old, slow and loud.
I have a youtube channel which I really enjoy making videos for, especially gaming ones, the main problem is, my computer can't handle many games and the ones it can it can barely handle while I'm not recording.
So I need a new computer. It can be a laptop or tower (I have a monitor, keyboard and mouse) but I would prefer a tower.
Should be fairly quiet, not as important if it is a tower.
Should be able to record as well as handling video games on a good graphics setting.
Should be able to render videos and edit videos fairly well (I know editing software doesn't comes with a computer but I imagine some computers are better for editing than others)
I have a budget of £300, I live in the UK so if possible please take shipping into consideration and the cheaper the better.
Windows is a must (I don't care what you think about Mac or Linux, windows is what I use)
It must include all parts, (fans, sound processor, mother board, graphics stuff, etc)
I would prefer not to put it together but if I have to it would not be the end of the world (I would also prefer not to have to order 70 different parts).
I know it's a lot of stuff and very hard to find a good one, but any advice/suggestions would be really useful.

Thanks for taking the time to read this! If you enjoy weekly YouTube videos full of great content, then check out my channel!
If you want silence I'd get define R5 tower (Gaming laptops are ridiculously overpriced)
You should get a GTX 980
The ability to render and work with videos is related to the graphics card
Windows type is a personal preference but I'd recommend Windows 10 Home 64-bit (Pro is overpriced and only gives you a couple of useless perks)
Fans and the fan controller come with the define r5
I''d go with the Intel Core i5-6500 3.2 GHz Quad-Core Processor and pair it with the Asus H170 PRO GAMING ATX LGA1151 Motherboard (discount combo on PCPartPicker) Also to save just use the stock fan.
To stay on budget (chances are my suggestions already are off budget) just do a Terabyte of HDD and just 8 Gigabytes of DDR4 Ram, also go without a optical drive (unless you actually use optical drives)
Also you should do either a 80+ Bronze or Gold Power Supply
Also if you want good sound you should buy either a sound card or a high quality set of headphones or speakers.
If you really don't want to build it, just hire a professional, but here is a very inspirational video-
FYI a pre built pc that fits your needs will be over $1000 (742.38 pounds)
