Budget Gaming PC Help?

My PC recently broke a few days ago, I'm looking for a new PC with a little better specs that can hopefully run games on med settings with mild lag. I have found one on eBay. I was just wondering is it worth the money, and is there a better one out there for a slight more money. I don't mind going over but trying to stay around the £250 mark. Thanks

Here is the PC I found:

PS: The computer don't need to be from eBay. As long as I can order it from the UK, also don't really mind if there is no a OS

All help would be fantastic, thanks ally :) Dylan

  1. Integrated GPU is not for gaming and the CPU is not that good either...
  2. That PC will not be running modern games.

    It does not even have a dedicated graphics card.

    On top of that you have no idea what power supply that machine has in, and PSU failure(because of bad quality PSU) is 80% of the reason why a computer fails.

    250 is not enough, spend more or see what you can salvage from your old machine.

    Can you suggest one please ?
  6. For that budget you can not expect any decent gaming performance.

    If you can get the optical drive, OS and maybe the case it would be good. This is without OS,optical drive and 1x4GB because you can add the same RAM later if you have money. With the old case and maybe HDD you can get under 300£.

  8. Wait, so are you going to build your own computer or buy a pre-built one? I suggest building one using StarBG's build.
