Hi all apologies in advance as I'm not a gamer or a tec head I want to buy my son a gaming pc but I'm on a budget, I have seen one...'Cyberpower PC Syber M AMD FX4300 GTX1050 8GB 1TB Gaming PC'. Has anyone any knowledge of its performance etc. My son plays on steam a lot and the pc he had literally had a nervous breakdown and died after blue screening, so I want to make sure the above mentioned won't give up too All advice welcome Thanks in advance

Not knowing the specs of the old computer or what your son is actually playing I can't really comment on how that PC will perform for him.

As for how long it will last, that video card is current (albeit low-end). So it will struggle with games in the future compared to a higher model. The CPU is also updated and may bottleneck any future video upgrades if your son went that route.

Spend a little more now so you won't have to in future. With gaming PCs buying the bare-minimum never pays off.

If course this again all depends on what is actually being played.

That above should read "The CPU is also outdated."

And "Of course" instead of "in course."

Can you find this PC in stock? I think it will not available in the market, you must have to find latest PC according to latest gaming requirements. I know it is most inexpensive and highly rated but you need some new thing.
