A good computer costs ~$1000. $300 is not by far enough to get a good computer that lasts.

Guys, he wants a premade one as he said earlier as he doesnt know how to put one together.

But on-topic, I dont think you can get a decent one with that price range.

EnderCat17guys guys its does not need to be $150-$250 as long as its kinda cheap its fine just dont make it like $500
and btw i know how to build a PC now so you can leave a parts list

KJ_BuildingTeamA good computer costs ~$1000. $300 is not by far enough to get a good computer that lasts.

Um what? $850 And will run pretty much every single game maxed out with >60fps @1080p. I could get it down to 800 and it would still do that if not less.

It won't be 13 dollars, that would more likely be 1300 dollars. Go seek some proper help from a PC store.

No, this will not play Minecraft lag-free while recording. Nothing in this price range will. But it is something, that won't lag terribly on Minecraft. If you want a lag-free computer that you can record with, you need to up the budget by at least a couple hundred dollars.

Get one second hand with cracked Windows. Profit.
My father deals in such computers and refurbishes old machines to work with the latest specs. You won't be able to play Skyrim on it, well on lowest graphics maybe but Minecraft isn't an issue. Such a machine would cost €50 which would be $52.

So your best bet is secondhand without OS or cracked. Not all second hand computers are as ''weak'' or cheap as my family sells. I got my graphics card second hand as well for only €30 making Skyrim Ultra ez. (It won't run Crysis 3 lol)

Yay linux! Yeah given it's free, runs minecraft fine and generally amazing that would be the way to go. I don't know much about computer building but on other blogs I have read people are building computers for about $1000 just to play minecraft. If you do suceed in buying one for $250 then it will NOT be lag free. Hope this helps
