Do any of you GAGers know what the best and most affordable gaming desktop PC I can buy later for 2016?

Trying to look for a good gaming PC desktop that can run games from Steam great.

If any of you know one good gaming PC, should I buy it from Amazon (online) or from Best Buy (in store)?

  • Don't buy a gaming PC from a major retailer. Look up some guides and build it yourself, you'll learn a lot and save a ton of money.

    • Have a look here:

    • I'd rather just pay no more than $500 on a used gaming PC desktop from Amazon, unless I you know a reliable old cheap computer that can run new games with compatible graphic cards than can run them.

    • No, you really need to get one built if you want anything decent
