Default Advice on PC buying.

Hello guys. I am looking to buy a PC that will run Sims 3, Minecraft and photoshop?
I don't want to spend a fortune, maybe around 400, am I being realistic?
Thank you for any suggestions you might offer, I live in the UK so ones that retail here please.

I take it you're looking for a pre-built? Do you need everything including the monitor/kb/mouse/ect?

We have a monitor also I would like the PC to have hdmi but that isn't essential. Prebuilt as I wouldn't know where to start. Haha

I can help you assemble a list of parts if you're willing to watch a few tutorial videos on how to assemble. That's what I'm here for, but it's your choice. Just let me know as I'm off all weekend.

Is this easy to do? I am useless with tech! What would be the cost roughly? I have seen a Zoostorm one that looks good for the price but like I said I'm not the best where pc's are concerned? Thank you.

It's really easy if you can follow some simple instructions and plug a few things into the proper holes. Everything has its own place so as long as you aren't completely dumb you can do it easy.

Depends on what you're willing to spend. I will maximize performance to your budget.

400 maybe a little more at a push.
