Hello I'm new to this forums for I really would like a PC that is able to run games ok. I would only have about £400 budget, not a lot but can I get a decent one? Also I have little space to put it but would a TV 40 inch TV be suitable from about 6 foot away. Thanks

To be realistic, £400 will not buy you a PC that will be a competent Gaming Machine. It will be able to play Games but with any, newish, Games you would need to be be operating at a low Frame Rate and at a very reduced resolution.

Relatively few PC Gamers use a TV as a Monitor

Look at it this way,you can't buy a Ferrari for the price of a mini.

Suggest that you look on somewhere like eBay or Gumtree for a suitable 'gaming' computer, that might be for sale in your own location. Check it out, and go from there. Nothing like having a test run, before you decide what you might want and can actually afford.
