Hello,
I want tot get my son a gaming desktop computer for minecraft. I would love to keep it under $500. The main thing he does is Minecraft. But I would also like him to be able to make videos on it and word process things for school.

It's difficult to make a good computer for 500 dollars.
I'd go with an APU configuration that combines graphics and cpu in the cpu chip on the motherboard. He'll need some ram for minecraft and decent graphics. A build like this:

What do you need for your computer? Do you need to buy a copy of Windows? How about a monitor, or a keyboard and mouse? If you already have a monitor, what resolution is it? The more info we have, the easier it is for us to help.
