Before you tell me to build one, I tried once, and I destroyed the motherboard and the GPU, so I don't trust myself to build one.

I'm looking for a nice prebuild PC that can run Minecraft and GTA (primarily) at medium settings 60fps.

Budget: ~$1000-1500 USD

I already have a mouse, keyboard, and monitor.

You can pay someone to build it for you

Honestly I get your worries but if you do take the proper precautions then it'll be a lot better to just build the computer yourself. But if you insist on pre-built, then you can use the websites I linked and find something within your price range that looks good to you. To put stuff in perspective, I have a GTX 660 OEM with 1.5GB RAM and I can play GTA V 60 fps on some somewhat high settings. It's now a $100-$150 card, so you've got plenty of room in your budget.

First of all, there are tons of different websites dedicated to allowing you to pick parts and have them send you the PC pre-assembled. I haven't used them before, but there's IBUYPOWER and CyberPowerPC and maybe a few others. I may be mixing them up, one or both of them might just be a place for just prebuilt computers and not customizable ones. Second, how in the world did you destroy the motherboard and GPU? Static or just rough handling?

I may or may not have dropped the computer while it was being assembled...

How does one drop a PC while building? No seriously, I'm curious.

Also, if you've tried to build a PC before, I assume you have a decent understanding of just how much power you need. Just go search up benchmarks that relate to the system that you're looking at.

So, I was assembling it on the Kitchen table, and my parents decided it was a good time to eat, so I was moving it to my bedroom so I could finish it there and I tripped on my way down the stairs...

assemble it where you won't have to move it then
