Default New PC

I want to buy a PC for my little brother for his birthday, I don't want to build hum one cause if he messes it up I'm away at uni so I can't fix it. So a warranty is needed. Currently this is what I think he needs https://www.pccasegear.com/products/...-gaming-system I think this because he plays a lot of intense games. Do you think it's worth it? I personally think it is.

That's actually a real good build though over priced if that's is US currently, the parts are not that of a prebuilt per say, those are all parts that can be purchased to build so there may be other places to have one built even with the same parts that will have a Warrantee for your brother but as for that build its good and has most parts I would actually use if building it.

I'm from Aus so I think it's reasonably priced. My brothers turning 16 thought it'd be a good PC

You do realize that's a PC they built using parts you could buy and they are slapping an extra 100 bucks on the price, right? Because of this you're not getting a warranty covering the whole PC like you would an actual pre-built desktop. They do not specify any kind of warranty information and I'd be willing to bet it's a per-part warranty like how NCIX does their builds.

I've emailed about that they said it was the hole machine.

I'd ask for a printed and signed document to prove this just to be on the safe side, simply because they don't specify anywhere on the page of the machine or even have a link to warranty information. Normally I wouldn't make a big stink about it, but since you want to get a pre-made desktop specifically for warranty reasons I'm just wanting to cover all areas.

This is stated on the page the OP linked to: "Warranty: 2 year return-to-base warranty on assembly, see individual product pages for warranty duration on each component"
