    I would use a website that lets you create your own pc as (no offense) you don't seem like a person that would build it themselves.
    Unless your husband can ofcourse.
    What games is he gonna play?
    because if it's games like minecraft and fortnite there is no point to beef it up a lot.

    Well Sten I can hardly turn the pc on tbh xd
    I've gotten mine from Overclockers so was gonna get him one from there too. I just need to know what ram, graphics card etc.He'll be using it for school, drawings, mc, some other crap games but maybe in future he'll be playing more demanding game.

    He plays mc and some other not demanding games atm. But if he decides to play some other more demanding games in the future I want the pc to handle it. Budget is around £1000

    If you aw
    If you want a prebuilt one, there's https://www.cyberpowerpc.com/. There's also https://www.letsbld.com/BLD but in this one, you choose the games, the budget, and they choose all the parts for you

    No problem :) I would suggest looking into more companies unless you want to build one on your own.

    Nothing wrong with buying a prebuilt pc but you could build a pc as a parent/child bonding activity. I recently built a tower and I didn't find it too hard, watched some YouTube videos on how to build a pc and it turned out decent.

    Whatever you decide it is probably best to make sure the computer has a wifi adapter (I bought a motherboard without a wifi adapter and one of my pci-e slots are taken by a wifi connector :confused:)

    This is probs the best choice. But if you are gonna pre-built we can still give some tips.

    At least I.M.O. I think that giving some tips on picking parts is nice.
    Mb, any that has all the specs that you want, integrated wifi possibly? A newer one ofc so you will have ddr4 ram and the choice to upgrade ur cpu later? The new i3 and i5s are stronger than most people think. Some are more than strong enough to game with so feast ur eyes on those. Gpu wise since ur budget is 1000 thats a hard pick because of the legit insane market right now, a 1050ti or a 1060 would be the best pick to not exceed your budget.
    Ssd ofc, once you go ssd you never go hdd ;).
    Dont go cheap on ur PSU thats not a component you want to go failing on you.

    Think thats all to say there. Good luck with picking your parts.

    I would go with both an ssd and hdd. Plus I wouldn't recommend a 1050ti not that its a bad gpu, only for the fact that she isn't looking into upgrading a lot.

    True.having both could be an option too.
    Btw I have a 1050ti in one of my extra pc's and its better than you would expect.
    Keep in mind 1000 dollar budget and the gpu prices are through the roof. But yeah ofc 1060-1070 would be a much better choice if she has the money..

    @Yautja4130 for him I would recommend an i5 maybe a 1050ti like @AdamTheHelper said.
    for ram i would just go for 8GB as you can always upgrade.

    [​IMG] i used chillblast.com looks like a good site.
    this is what I recommend for your son to start out with as you can always upgrade if he wants to play other games.
