Hi guys I want to start PC gaming so I have been looking at my options, to buy prebuilt secondhand or build one myself, I have the option to get one of these gaming PCs and I'm just asking for help which would perform best and play games better, I am after it mainly for fps games but I also want it to run most games at atleast medium settings. My budget is £300 but I can stretch to the 350 stated on PC if you guys feel that its worth that much more than the others.

Of any of them I guess the first one. Only because it has a discreet graphics card, but we don't even know what it is? None of them are particularly great builds to be honest. This is a far better build, not entirely sure on the conversion rate, but it should be close. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/fhGRmG That being said, i'm not exactly an expert, and i'm sure others here would do a much better job

You are MUCH better off building your own PC. This will out perform those PCs listed a great amount
