Hello, I am a complete computer noob. I havw always been the type to just use the computer my parents buy as I have always preferred console gaming as opposed to using a mouse. With me recently getting involved in competitive fortnite I am looking to upgrade the quality of the game I play.

My main question that I have would be what are some good prebuilt Computers that I could buy that are priced anywhere from $600 to $800. I am not opposes to building my own rig, however I do believe since I am primarily going to use it for fortnite that a pre built would suit me just fine. Anything other than light gaming would just be your average Web browsing and Youtube. I just want some pro opinions on decent prebuilt machines. I have checked reviews but theyre so shady, 5 people love it then 3 say it is the worst computer they ever used.

Thank you.

It's far better just to build your own pc b/c of

  1. Better price/performance

  2. Warranty on each part so you can send back one doa part instead of the entire pc.

  3. Know exactly what you're getting.

  4. Some prebuild manufactors tend to cheap out on the motherboard, case, power supply or maybe all of them. They tend to skimp on something.
