Good gaming PC for £350

Hi everyone I have been thinking about trying to make my own gaming PC instead of buying a pre built one so can anyone suggest a really good build that is good for gaming. Does not need any monitor, keyboard, mouse, mouse mat, speakers or headset. Also is this a good idea for me since I have never built my own PC before.

Hi, I am sorry to say you will really struggle to build a decent gaming PC for £350 you would struggle with £500.

As for building a PC it is a great idea as you learn a lot from putting components together, installing Windows and finally seeing it boot up for the first time.

But as I have said you are going to struggle.

As you have said that I will struggle trying to build a gaming PC I might just go with the HP desktop. But do you know if AMD processor and AMD graphics card work better if they are both together.Here is desktop

Not a PC I would choose as PC World tend not to use the best components but do charge a high price.

In answer to your question, it makes no difference if CPU and graphics card are the AMD But your link to the HP has a Radeon HD 7570 which is a renamed 6570 and I think you can do better for that sort of cash.

But that would mean buying online which obviously is different than goinhg into the store and getting a PC.

If I was to sell the graphics card on it how much do you think it would be worth and do you know any good £100 graphics cards for gaming. If there is a graphics card for a bit more than a £100 put it in aswell.

As far as I can make out the HD 7570 in the HP PC is a rebadged HD 6570 and worth very little. It could be something similar to one of these.
