Question Daughter wants pc


Distinguished Member
My daughter is 9 she played games that are pap. She wants to be a YouTube (I keep pushing her to law). Anyhow she is asking for a pc (I can’t decide between this and Xbox). For around 600-700 are there any recommended bundles that include a monitor any one can recommend ?

She can do a lot more with a PC than an Xbox, play music, movies, games, internet, homework/study, draw, colour stuff in (with the right software) word processing etc etc the world is her oyster with a PC. Pop down to your local electrical store and explain her needs, they should be able to hook you up with something half decent for £700. She will not be able to get a top power gaming system for that but definitely something that will do everything she wants and some basic gaming.

You could get a good 1080p system for that price. You'll struggle to get a decent PC and monitor though for it all. Certainly not impossible but it will be the most basic of monitors.

How's your lego building skills ?

I would keep away from the likes of currys/pc world for a pc ..
most of their Pc's are rubbish .
you could take a look at Overclockers ,Scan or ebuyer for a prebuilt PC , but having some one else build it will cost you money ,
building you own is easy with a little bit of knowledge ...

Agree, build your own. £700 should be OK, look at putting together a Ryzen system. I think there are quite a few threads in this forum with good suggestions, worth having a read and let us know what you're planning.
