As topic states, I'm looking for a PC that can run overwatch. I like to play with the gfx on low @1080p and a minimum of 100fps. I've been playing on my friends Alienware which is awesome but I'm not dropping 1k plus on a computer...I'm also not looking to build one.

What's your budget? Just anything <$1000? Do you own a monitor and/or peripherals, or do you need those as well?

In general, could you please answer any and all relevant questions from this thread that you haven't answered? We can't help you unless you tell us quite a bit more.

I'd say $500 maybe 600 tops for just the tower. My friend is selling me the extras for cheap.

You could build two overwatch PCs for under $500. Just buy any Dell Precision with a Xeon W35xx off ebay and put a RX460 or 1050 in it.

This just popped up for $450, ~10 hours left on sale:
https://computers.woot.com/offers/hp-pavilion-560-intel-i5-rx480-1tb-desktop?ref=w_cnt_cdet_pc_price

i5-6400
RX480 4GB
8GB RAM (looks like 2x4GB)
128GB SSD
1TB HDD
300w ATX PSU

You could upgrade that scary 300w PSU for cheap:

$30 after rebate:

Or find a nicer ~500w range PSU around $50.

While it's really scraping the lowest end of almost everything, you wont be able to beat the performance for that price.
The RX480 (even 4GB flavor) is about twice as fast as an RX460 or GTX1050, it's slightly better than a GTX1060 3GB.
Compared to last generation, that's about an R9 290/390 or GTX970.

Maybe in the future replace the RAM with 2x8GB and perhaps find a really good deal on a used 6700 (no OC, so you don't need a K CPU)

Not bad at all. Coincidentally, perhaps, I've got a friend coming by to pick up a gaming rig. It has:

i5-6400 @ 4.266Ghz
B150 ATX OC board with Killer NIC
16GB DDR4-2400
RX 470 4GB
128GB SSD for Windows 10 Home OS
1TB HDD for game storage
600W EVGA PSU
ATX case

Basically, that's very similar. I'm charging him $700, I think that it cost me slightly more for the parts.

That PC from woot is a factory reconditioned, and it only has 8GB of RAM rather than 16GB, and doesn't have an overclocked CPU, but it's still decent, especially for the price.
