It's has been a long time since I last built a gaming PC (15 years or so) and now that Smudger Jr has decided he doesn't want a PS4, and wants to do grown up gaming, I need to get him a box that will do him for the next 2-3 years.
Soooo, what would be considered minimum specs for a decent gaming PC? Budget is a bit up in the air - I'm thinking £500-£750 - is this realistic? Will it be enough to get him something that doesn't annoy him with its limitations? I've told him that if we can't afford something decent, he's better off sticking with consoles till he can afford a proper machine - no point buying a compromise.
He will be into FPS and simulations (flight/racing etc).
