Hello people, I was wondering wether one it would be cheaper to buy and build my own gaming pc or buy a decently cheap one but I don't want to spend a fortune on one maybe £350 British pounds? Thanks

What is your budget and currency? (Pound sign does not work normally, use GBP abbreviation)
Do you need a monitor?
Do you need a keyboard?
Do you need a mouse?
Do you need an operating system?
What will you use the PC for?

I'm just looking for a tower for 350GBP although if I can get the lot for that then that's always a bonus. I just want the cheapest method to getting a gaming PC that would be able to run me custom zombies smooth. Whatever operating system.If I have to spend more then I would thanks.

350 GBP won't get you past low end barely ablle to run medium on some games but here.

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

CPU Cooler: be quiet! Pure Rock Slim 35.1 CFM CPU Cooler (£19.98 @ Novatech)

I really suggest you come back when you have 4-500GBP you are willing to spend.

We don't know if you have a monitor.
We don't know if you wanted aesthetics to look somewhat decent.
We don't know what you need.
