i have a mentally disabled friend with not much money and he wants a pc for gaming. he knows he cant afford a top of the line pc and would happily settle for something much cheaper as long as it gets him from point a to point b. he needs a prebuilt system. he doesnt have an lcd monitor eaither so he needs that too. keep in mind, what you may think is old and obsolete would make him quite happy. what would you recommend?

Would work fine for what you have somewhat described.

Does the monitor have to be 1080P or what is optimal screen size. Also is OS needed? You should try and help assemble one with/for him. It's quite easy and a much cheaper alternative. Usually companies like CyberPower or iBuyPower, although more affordable than Alienware, still jip you off.

Good choice for the price. But the PC's video output is limited to VGA and HDMI. The monitor's input is limited to VGA and DVI. So the he will have to use the VGA... or, better yet, grab an HDMI to DVI adapter also.

The digital to digital will be a better, less troublesome display arrangemant.

question, the pc we went with, 3850, it said dual core but the internal specs list it as a quadcore as does this site. so is it a dual or a quadcore?
