I'm just going to assume it's going to be a gaming PC. Buy a old OEM Workstation PC with a Xeon and add a GPU to it.

What should he do?

@virtualgamer425 He should slowly buy PC parts and over time build a gaming PC. If done patiently, $750 can build a $1000 gaming PC. Especially if person A has years experience with eBay. Insane deals on PC parts(especially GPU's and CPU's) come and go daily on eBay. And I'm talking brand new parts.

In my experience, Investing on a moderately fine I5 and relying on its IGPU for a while until he rises the money for a beast GPU would be the best option. Intel IGPUs are quite capable this times, I manage myself with an I3 7100 for fortnite at low settings, but it reaches 60 fps no sweat! but, as with the other responses, it depends, for CAD work is better to have beast IPCs so investing on a nicer CPU is better on that scenario.

Actually, that depends on the person's choice or What is his requirement? Nowadays there are so many options of PC's and Laptops available in the market under $750. For example, you can buy ASUS VivoBook F510UA. It's an amazing laptop with amazing configuration in this price range.

Person A should donate it to Person B who only has an electronic potato and no computer.

Why declare a variable if its the only one? hehehe.

Anyway depends on what the use is for the computer on what you buy.

notebook nice and portable. but less performance and/or higher prices.

prebuilt is nice stable (most of the time) but can be hard to upgrade if smalle form factor.

Building yourself might be cheapest but can give some issues, if you havent done it before.

Old PC's are probably the cheapest option but can have issues upgrading.

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016
