I'm no gamer but I use a gaming pc for light room and photoshop
Okay, this could be tricky but there are some options.around £500 which i realise is low. my son will play things like mine craft and fifa on it
Decent build! I personally would put in a 256Gb NVMe boot drive and put the rest towards a couple of TB's of platter storage instead of a single large-ish SSD.Okay, this could be tricky but there are some options.
- Is there already a monitor and keyboard and mouse available?
- Are you, or do you know someone, who is happy to assemble a PC from components?
If the answer is yes, then with a "grey market" Windows key and a small stretch of the budget it's possible to build a very capable machine.

Let me know what you think, happy to help to find a good solution
Going that cheap you'd have to make sure it's a dram cache SSD, but some are at that price still, think I need to get one myselfSSD & NVMe drives are so cheap these days its totally worth it IMO. Admittedly it depends on how tight money is but if you can spare £35 for a 256Gb NVMe you will not regret it.
