I have no idea what I'm doing with choosing a desktop computer and I just need some help with what I should get. I will use it for gaming and for work at home. Thank you.

We need a bit more detail if we are to help you. Which games would you like to play? What software will you need to use for your work at home and any hobbies e.g. photo editing?

You will get lots of advice if you explain exactly what you want to use it for, without that information no one can even take a reasonable guess.

Thank you for replying and it will be games like Gmod and CS:GO also the work at home will just be very basic tasks using Microsoft word and power point.

Looking at the minimum specs for the games you list you don't need a true gaming PC. It really depends upon what your budget is. You could get something that would do what you want for around £300. his one from PC World would do all you need click here If you can spend another £100 you can go to the next level of Intel processor click here
