Hello! I’m looking to buy a gaming pc that is $400 dollars or below. I am willing to go a little over on the price if necessary. I plan to do Roblox-like games with recording for YouTube.

I would like to have a good amount of cores, for an easier editing experience, but it’s not a must-need.

Games I plan to stream/record: Roblox, Minecraft, YouTubers Life, etc.

Preference on specifications:

CPU: 4 cores or above. Intel or AMD.

GPU: Prefer to use Nvidia, as I won’t be cryptomining.

RAM: I wish to have over 8 GB, but 4 is workable.

Storage: Looking to use a Hard Drive, no SSDs.

PSU: No preference.

Case: Already have one, not needed. I believe it’s ATX.

Thanks in advance!

This build is basically like the poster aboves, just slightly changed to work better for gaming. That said you should probably get another 4gb stick of ram as quickly as possible, because video editing will probably be quite a drag with 4... BUT if you don't plan on playing any games that are more graphically intense then Minecraft and roblox... you should probably go for 8gb of ram and a 1050 like the poster above said.
