Current gen, not gonna happen unless you get lucky on ebay, craigslist etc

 

Go to the local scrapper in your town, see whos turned in older PCs to be recycled - you can find/buy some really interesting, unique parts if they anything available to peruse.

 

I read a guide on this, I haven't tried in my hometown yet - but apparently you can get some CHEAP stuff from the local scrappers/recyclers.

by building it. the advise given by @Tristerin is really good. but if you want to buy anything cheap but not that cheap, look into linus's recent 150 dollar pc build. he'll explain some more things with a second hand optiplex

If you're super concerned about doing something wrong, prebuilts are the way to go. Not much to screw up there.

Get a Dell Optiplex with a 3rd gen Core i5 or i7.

Upgrade to 8GB of Ram

Get a new PSU

Buy an used hd 7850

 

That is a cheap really gold gaming machine. 

 

PSU: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/Q7L7YJ

 

I have the HP Pro version - with an HD 7750 (microtowers depending on the mobo wont support a long card only short cards - but can support up to a GTX 1060 6gb if your PSU is 320w or better)  I have a TON of experience with this type of OEM PC

 

And he is right OP - this is absolutely the most affordable PC that can do things.

 

If you want to spend around $300 total than this is my suggestion hands over fist (free OS, small SSD or mech drive, comes with a crap GPU already):

6 core / 12 thread goodness.  Cheap.

I didn’t see a budget nor country. 

 

My brother bought an i5 2XXX pc with 8GBof ram and 500 GB HDD on eBay for 200~ USD and I gave him a GTX 1050 TI, that’s about 3-400 dollar slick setup that can max out stuff till 2014~ and then go pretty high in today’s games.

like 400 dollars for a gaming desktop

 

Here is what you can do with that budget regarding new hardware:

But since it is not the best performer, you'll probably get better value out of used hardware.

 

 

You could get something like this:

 

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-Optiplex-9020-Desktop-Core-i7-4770-3-40GHz-8GB-RAM-1TB-HDD/382628926886?hash=item59167615a6:g:S28AAOSwgPdbSV-H:rk:7:pf:0

 

and then throw in a 1050ti and an SSD.
