i’m currently looking for a budget prebuilt pc because building a pc is not an option right now, the pc i’m looking at for now is a “ibuypower arcb 108av2 gaming desktop computer” but i’m a little concerned about how it’ll run the games i play.

that being said, does anybody know how these games would run on it?
Minecraft
fallout 3, fallout 4, fallout new vegas
Detroit become human
little nightmares 1 and 2
life is strange
etc.


do they run good? should i look at a different pc? please help

Fallout 4 will run very poorly. So will Detroit: Become Human.

Other games will only run because they're a decade old or even older. This is not a gaming PC.

Basically, the GPU is equivalent to an entry-level gaming GPU from 2010. Quite literally; its performance is on par with a GT 430, an entry-level GPU released in 2010 for $79.

The CPU is quite a bit better -- this is pretty much a solid office PC -- but that won't bail you out with anything that needs a gaming GPU made int he last decade.

The GPU shortage has increased the justification for buying a pre-built, but since this one doesn't have one of those hard-to-get actual gaming GPUs, there's certainly no reason to buy it anywhere near the $600 asking price.

If you are only getting a PC for gaming and nothing else and that is your budget i might suggest a PS or Xbox X. They are hard but not impossible to source.
Discord has many resources to notify of drops. I have gotten 2 xboxes and 1 ps5 there as well as GPUs.

You will need at MINIMUM a 1050ti to play any real games at low to medium settings at 1080p or 720p/
A gtx 1650 would ne my choice for the lowest budget card to buy and it will play most games 1080p in low settings
