    Affordable machine for my son

    Thanks for chiming in....

    Requirements:

    Cheap as possible, ~500 would be great
    Enough horse power to develop/publish Roblox games. Son develops using Lua in Roblox and my machine doesn't have enough HP. My machine is 8 gbs, 2 gb cheap video, OLDSCHOOL i7 process and a SSD HD.

    I don't want to give him mine, because I have so much configured and installed it would take forever......

    I'm thinking it's going to need a GTX 4 GB video card. I think that's min.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Pick up a used/refurb Dell for $300ish and then put a GTX1050Ti in it.

    Desktop or laptop? Haven't seen too many deals in that price range. Here's one I could find:

    Went to a refurbish shop the cost were insanely high. Optiplex with I7 8 GB ram 530.....

    Microcenter has a gaming desktop for 699, has SSD, 4 GB GTX, 16 gb ram with a 7 gen i5 6 cores. This might be the best I can get for the buck.

    The power supply is pretty nice..... I could upgrade to the 8gb GTX card in the future....

    Just thinking out loud

    I've got the Inspiron 7000 and got it for around 400 bucks like a year ago. Just check Best Buy's open box most times they're brand new in perfect condition

    I go to St Louis a half-dozen times a year for work. I visit that one when I go. It’s neat to see all the stuff in person.

    Brought the machine home, looking to get the video card next pay period. Hopefully get a 4 GB GTX, that should set him up. The Optiplex comes with a 240 W supply, I'll need to upgrade that as well to a 300 W. Other than that should be good. The 8 GB of Ram works fine.....

    BTW That's the one I went too. It's great.

    The one I linked is a MT (mini tower), which should use a standard 275W PSU, and will support 75W from the PCI-E slot. The GTX1050Ti will work out of the box without a PSU upgrade as they don't require an extra PCI-E power connection.

    So as long as you got the MT style case, you should be fine. If you got some other unit in a different form factor, it may not work at all, even with a PSU upgrade, because the PCI-E slot on those isn't specified at supporting 75W.

    Dude I got the mini tower, the exact one you recommended. I'll go ahead and get the card you recommended. Pretty excited about the set up.

    It's getting purchased today. My son has been using the objects to build mini environments, but I want him to create his own objects. He's like Dad that's hard. I said I know it is that's why I want you to learn it.

    He has been creating do while loops on the present objects for coloring etc... I'm trying to teach him a counter, but you know Dad is a dictator!

    Speaking of which I'll need to face time to make sure he has his editor open coding LUA, (It's a lightweight C, used to develop in embedded environments).

    Dude just as you stated, works like a charm. By the way the case is super easy to work with and the installation of the card was super easy, great call out man thanks.

    Kid is upstairs in full on geek mode.

    Thanks again.

    Awesome! The 1050Ti is a great card, with a heck of a lot of performance for only 75W.
