    Wanting a cheap desk top or laptop(sub £300), that's capable of playing footy manger, and older games at reasonable settings(COD2 etc). Don't want this to turn into a geekfest about frame rates and overclocking, just recommendations please

    look on YouTube for ideas and go to gumtree eBay reedit for deals.

    I'd look on cex has quite a lot of desktops under £300 that will do what you want it to do example uk.m.webuy.com/search?sPage=1&catid=[1067]&is=1&online_only=1&stext=*&sortOn=sort_by_relevance&op=1&minPrice=8&maxPrice=294&sPgSize=25

    better to get a laptop, less floor space and electric

    Damn mate, cant believe google is down! When did this happen!?

    Always recommend PC over a Laptop for future upgradability. Sometimes people sell whole rigs outdated ones for around £250. Gumtree is good for these things. I guess you'd want at least a 4th gen i3 like and i3-4130 or a 3rd gen i5. As for the GPU you'd want something like an r9 270 (minimum).

    I guess the CPU and the GPU are the most important things. Judging from your question I doubt you know much about computers, so if you do find a pc or laptop for your budget drop the specs and I'm sure one of us will help you out. Gl

    LOL seriously though you didn't give much to work on. it was like well I want a pc/laptop for £300 or less go find me!! Any pc/laptop from 1999 will play the games you mentioned. If you said want you planned on using it for in more detail and if your bothered if it's new/used upgradeable, anything you've looked at ect.. no one's psychic you've narrowed it down to any pc build in the last 10 yrs

    Say that then, like I said I don't want a geekfest but each time their own !
