    Right now that set up with a 100 bucks for steam games is 447.99 so I guess my budget without games is 450-500.

    So... Thats the cheapest I could go? I don't think I want to build one from the ground up... What was the problem with what I had picked out? Couldn't I just get a decent pc and drop a good graphics card in it then it would work? Because summer is ending and I am going to have to stArt into high school I won't have as much work time to work with school happening (I am homeschooled so I can work more than a public schooler) ...........

    Any way. Sorry that's To much money. Any other ideas?

    Linux? lol. The budget is low, IF you can get more money, then wait. If not, Paducah's list is pretty decent. However, you could also just cut back on the games, and buy those later, when there are huge sales like Cyber Monday and the Steam Summer sale.

    EDIT: For many stock PCs (Dell, HP, etc) they don't have extra PCI-e slots, large enough cases or good enough power supplies.

    A really good gaming PC goes for over 1k, so you will have to save up. i would only go with EVGA graphics cards, because they are very powerful and reliable.

    All of you out of the way, the Mac mini( I currently own one) is a perfect gaming computer and if you have the newest pc software It can even become a pc I once set off 500 TNT in minecraft with no lag whatsoever I even did the same on a server with no lag I also have even beat survival on games (200+ enemies at a time) with no lag and it is even only 600 dollars I even have ran minecraft servers off of it and the people thought it was some $2000 pc specifically made for servers also on the Internet I have never seen a "buffering" and in games when people are saying LAGGGGGG I am saying what is this lag You speak of.this is all a 100% stock Mac mini

    If I had the money I would.. Actually no.. I'd never buy a mac. I'm building my own PC. No time for a hipster computer
