Hello! I've decided that I don't want to deal with building a custom PC for my brother, I would instead rather buy one. I want to spend between $400-600 on this PC and I am limited to newegg.com and amazon.com. I was hoping somebody could find a pc on each that gives him the best run for the money and then I will decide between the two of them! I know this is a lot to task but if somebody can help me out it would be greatly appreciated! ALSO, I plan on buying him a new GPU around christmas time (no more than $200 but I want the processor and the case to be able to handle/fit a full sized graphics card!) Thank you so much! Need advice ASAP!

Also do you have an operating system you would like to install yourself or would you like to have it pre-installed?

Hello, I really wish you luck but I need to order one TONIGHT, I don't have an OS and need to do this immediately as his birthday is coming up soon. I really love helping out small businesses and that's exactly what I did when I bought my PC but if you make a website and get going send me a message so I can check it out! When I buy PC's, the smaller the company the better! If I wasn't in such a rush I would definitely look into your offer! Once again, very sorry!

I don't think any of those PC's will support a full sized graphics card though, will they? They look very small and judging by the card I currently have, it wouldn't fit in a case like that.

The one with the FX 6300 WILL fit a full size graphics card due to the case design :)

the thing that scares me about that build is the no-name 300W PSU...most GPU's require a minimum of 500W.

EDIT: i just checked, the GTX 650 requires a 400W minimum PSU

Yeah thats the bad thing about pre-built computers. They put the lowest psu in there.

I wish i could build a quality computer for this guy,I hate recomending pre-builts. I would feel much better knowing him to get a good quality computer that can EASILY be upgraded no worry about a psu or case size.

You have to remember too that thats very overkill. As long as it has a decent 12v rail and the correct pci power plugs you will be fine,Hell i could run a 550ti on a 350w psu. But you know its sketchy with a 300w and a 6 core.

Will this one hold a full sized GPU? It is a little more around my price range at the moment! Also will this be able to hold an ssd later on?

It should! its a 500w psu but as long as it has the correct power connectors you should be fine. For $200 or less the full size GPU's are not that big compared to my 11 inch 7950
