Could anybody please point me in the direction of gaming pc bundles with some links. My nearly 13 year old has been asking for a gaming pc for Xmas,but I'm so un technology its proving hard to work out what to get.
It's just an idea at the moment as I don't want to pay over £600 so if it's not worth buying one for that price I will look into something else.
Hi, I can't help I'm afraid but I'm in the same boat.
I've spoken to cyberpower and pcsolutions and they have quoted a couple of different packages.
I think you'll struggle for £600 to get anything with a decent processor or graphics card.
Thanx dragon,yea that's what we have figured. It's looking more like £600 just for the tower,so closer to £1000 all in.
From a quick skim of some sites, yeah, looks like a budget gaming PC is usually around £600; an AMD or Intel quad-core CPU and a GTX 1050 graphics card seems typical.
Do beware of "gaming" PCs sold that have either no graphics card or a very poor one.
Peripherals shouldn't come to anywhere near £400. I'd consider getting a monitor second hand - mine cost me 50 quid from cash converters, it's a bit small but it's 1080p and does the job.
