Thank you =)
L4D2 not too great a demand along with Minecraft, but if he decides get more newer games
Well he is only 13 so I wouldn't allow him to get too into video games, would rather he focus on schoolwork and socializing, so I'm not worried about newer fancier games. I don't see him becoming interested in anything graphic intensive anyway. Just not his thing. As it is, Minecraft is the one game hobby he has. So if these computers I listed can run these two games that would be great.
Wait for more answers if you can, hope some of this helps you.
Thank you for taking the time to help!
Your quite welcome.
Your a good mother i see, you are right too much video gaming is not good, school is important, yes best to be outside socializing.
Funny L4D2 has a mature rating anyway
First ASUS you posted has poor ratings.
This is a good deal although $ 150. over your price range, but it is an Intel i5 8GB RAM Dell
Has enough for most application today, separate Video card which is good for games and videos and can always be upgraded in future.
Think this can be a good one, it is not too far behind in technology to have for number of years to come.
Try looking at NewEgg's clearance PC's, NewEgg
Always trust this company, good reputation, alot of times free shipping and coupons.
With a $500. limit it would be impossible to say you will get a gaming PC unless is was quite old or used one.
Stick with name brands, play it safe,Dell, ASUS,HP.
Google is your good friend
Me i do my homework first, internet great resource,GOOD LUCK!!
