What kinda games does he like - that way we can dictate what kinda graphics card is in need.... (although I doubt he'll be playing COD 4 or Crysis lol!)

I could build you a basic PC (Possibly better than the above just without the TFT lol....)

Thats a pentium 4... quite old but still not too bad considering a monitor IS included.

What is your budget without monitor?

Register for FreeCycle - there's one in most areas. People give away computer stuff all the time!

If its just for playing games, then why not consider the xbox360 arcade package now down to £129.99?

Or if you are decided on a PC, most companies sell of stock usually on auction sites where you would pick up a basic spec base unit for £30-£50 possibly less. If you tell them you're looking for a monitor as well they will usually throw this in along with a keyboard and mouse etc for an extra few quid. As theres nothing more specific to go on you'd need to scout about and maybe do a bit of haggling.

New Base units + monitor etc at least £150 at the very minimum and very basic parts/spec.

Better spec units/package around same price but again nothing more specific to meet your requirements.

I wish you the best of luck anyways. Cheers.

might be kinda risky doing this, often kids will just go out and spend b'day money etc on a game never considering whether it will run on their pc, awful disappointment can follow
When it comes to gaming many many pc's are just not up to it.
consider the xbox wired to a monitor option

As already stated, don't buy a computer for a child to mainly play games on. Nothing they want to play will be straightforward to load. A console is a much better bet.
