I'm looking for a pre-built desktop for gaming for 600$ max.
I don't really know what my specs should be. I could build one myself but I would need convincing and a really easy to follow tutorial as it would be my first build. No one I know is tech savvy enough to help me out and I am 15. I am willing to spend 500-600 dollars but I won't be buying for a month. I need peripherals and an OS. I think I covered everything... I don't really know. Help!

Here's a guy trying to convince you to build a computer. Ok, so there is a YouTube channel called New Egg, one of the most popular technology channels on YT. They have 3 parts of tutorials on how to build your computer

1. Getting parts
2. Building
3. Doing os and other programs.

I will be creating your build on a website called PCPartPicker. Very helpful for beginners like you, they have a forum if you need help with anything, and comparisons to parts if you don't know what to pick.

And before I start creating your build do you want the following:

Optical Drive and a CPU Cooler. And do you just want keyboard and a mouse? Or do you want a headset keyboard mouse and speakers? And do you want an optical drive?

Thank you I have checked out New Egg and I think could do it. Thank you so much because currently all I have is a crappy laptop that can barely run minecraft. In about a month I will be buying and hopefully enjoying my first gaming rig.
