Entry Level Gaming PC

Hi guys. I am looking for an entry level gaming pc. I won't be using it for gaming but I want something decent. I've been out of the of market for a while. I'm looking for something in the range of $800-$1000. Any recommendations would be awesome.

Do you want to choose from something a vendor has built, or do you want to build one yourself.

$800 to $1000 is really not enough, even for an entry level gaming PC.

Something that's already built will be sufficient. As I mentioned, I won't be using it for gaming. But would like something decent. I was looking at Lenovo Erazer

Your 1st sentence says "An entry level Gaming PC"

So then go to your local PC store or Bestbuy and start browsing, the employees there should help you, I personally have no idea what`s sold on the market and if it`s any good.

I've built some pretty awesome gaming PC's for under $1000. It's quite easy if you get the right parts. Obviously not going to be top end, but can def game for $1000.

He said he does not want to build it.

I think $800 is more then enough for a ready made PC, any brand will do, like I said just hit the stores. They`ll help you.

lornaevo I personally can't give you a answer but I can give some suggestion.
Shopping for computers and or computer parts is somewhat enjoyable.

Basically you need to do some shopping in stores or online.
Take your time and it will take some time, lots of time.

Get back to the good folks here with some systems you are interested in and they will be able to give opinion and suggestions.

If you look at other members (System Specs) you will see we most all have different ideas of what a system should be, what they want, what they can afford or are willing to spend.
Example:
I would always get a Intel cpu. But their are many members that use AMD and are very happy with their AMD as I am with my Intel's.

Your own shopping will help you to create a list and the members should be able to help you fine tune that list.

It looks like you want to do nothing that requires high power. If that is true, any PC around $500 will do. Only question is laptop or desktop.
