Hi, this is my first order so I'd appreciate anyone checking my spec to see that it all makes sense.

Budget: ~£800-900

Uses: home office, coding (VS Code), music production (Reaper), light/old gaming (indie, Left4Dead)

Monitors:
Samsung S22E450B 1920x1080 - DVI & VGA
LG M227WDJ 1920x1080 - DVI, VGA, HDMI

My specific questions were:
Will this build support these two monitors ok?
Is this case choice ok?
Is the power ok? It would be good to have the option to potentially add a graphics card at a later date.

Thanks very much for any advice!

At this price you're not going to get the most amazing system, but you probably can get something that will do what you need. (Though I'm not sure how demanding Reaper is in multi-core scenarios.)

I'd make just a couple of tweaks. I'd change the case, not because you need to now but because you're talking about the possibility of a future upgrade where it would be important to have better cooling. I'd then add a external DVD drive if you need one. With a better case I'd remove the extra fan. 650W is probably sufficient, but upgrading it to 750W would give you a bit more headroom: I haven't changed it but I'd advise you to if your budget allows.

With the monitors, you have two outputs on the motherboard. One is HDMI, which will work fine with your LG monitor. The other is DisplayPort, which will need an adapter to go to the DVI input on the other monitor, so I've added that to your build too.
