Best place to buy cheap gaming PC?

I'm trying to spend less than $800 on a PC capable of running the game Fallout 4. I realize at this price I'll only get minimal specs.

I thought I'd found one on Tiger Direct but 5 weeks after ordering it I got an Email yesterday saying they couldn't fill the order.

I'm not knowledgeable enough to build my own, and price is very much a concern so please don't try to convince me to spend a lot more.

Any help/advice would be appreciated, even if just places to avoid.

Thanks.

here is a couple that i think fairly good, maybe wait on a sale on them or a similar model. but they both come with a fairly nice graphics card, good cpus and enough of memory to run Fallout or any other game out there, ofcourse it wont be on max settings.
Also keep in mind it does not come with monitor.

Stay away from Best Buy. Newegg/NCIX/Memory Express are the places you want. I hate recommending pre-built PC's, it's much cheaper and better to get parts and build your own (a 5 year old can do this), or get a friend to do it.

That being said, try this: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/ProductLis ... ageSize=30

Don't really think a 5 year old can build pc...most people I know don't even know how to build a pc.

No it's not.

In terms of costs
Custom < prebuilt < refurbished

Prebuilts are only expensive when you start upgrading. (Ie. Sites like Dell thay let you upgrade the base model)



My suggestion for OP is to check out nmicrovip. Can i3/i5 prebuilt system can be found for 400-600$.
Just add a good GPU like a R9 290/ HD 7950/7970 for under 150$ and you'll be set
Favourite Games: NieR (PS3), Catherine (PS3), Persona 3 FES/Portable (PS2/PSP), Final Fantasy IX (PSX), Persona 4 Golden (PSV), Witcher 1,2,3 (PC), Skyward Sword (Wii), Pokemon Colosseum (GC), Fire Emblem Awakening (3DS), Shin Megami Tensei IV (3DS), Majora's Mask (3DS), Bravely Default (3DS)

I was looking at Tigerdirect.ca looking for barebone kit derals, but they are all gone. Has Tigerdirect.ca rid themselves of their DIY kit deals?

Tigerdirect is going to close by the end of January.
