Which is the best off-the-shelf gaming PC

My 12-year-old son wants to buy a gaming PC - to play Minecraft, Age of Empires etc. We've looked online and at PC World but keep getting conflicting advice. He's got a budget of £600 and I can add to that to get a good quality model. His current laptop overheats and runs very slowly so he wants a PC that is quick with good graphics. Any suggestions of off-the-shelf PCs would be very welcome. We're not confident enough to build it ourselves. With thanks

Elixir certainly looks good value for money AND includes operating system.

I am not a "Gamer" but a well respected/reputable firm and recommended by many on this Forum is Novatech - take a look here for "starters" (and prices) enter link description here

In my opinion any of the first 3 would be suitable and around about your budget.

Then I suggest you wait for further advice from the Gaming members to keep you right.

Is it a laptop or desktop you are looking for? £600 for a gaming laptop will not get you a decent machine. Chill blast, as Woolwell quite rightly points out is a decent place to look for a reasonable specced desktop.
