Okay for $330 I can get this used HP Pavilion 500-023w Desktop PC - Refurbished it has a i3,8gb dddr3 ram,windows 8 a 300 watt psu and some crappy intel 2500 gpu. I was gonna put a 750 ti or what ever its called in it or I was thinking of getting a used xbox one for like $350 which one should I get? which would last me longer?

Xbox one, or just keep saving money for a "real" computerů.

You'll probably have more luck with the Xbox.

That's actually a tough call. The XB1 will look better, but it is a console so be prepared to pay for online and a lot for games.

The PC on the other hand would let you start building a library, but those are kind of hard to upgrade to begin with so unless you plan on buying a different PC in the future it's almost a waste.

I'd either save some more scratch for a better PC (check cyberpowerpc.com for some decent prebuilts for gaming) or go with the xb1, I guess.

actually if you have any friends that have xb1 you can do a license transfer and if they have gold you won't have to pay for gold

save up another 350 then build your own PC.

You'll really have to decide which features and games you want most.

Going the PC route, you'll have a PC with all it's regular features, and with the graphics card in there, you'll be able to do some lower end gaming no problem. If you already have that option though, it's pointless.

With the Xbone, you do get some computer functionality, in the sense of web browsing and whatever else they have, but it's an entirely different set of games in the future. Right now basically all of it is being ported to PC, but in the future, more exclusives may come.

I would keep saving up for a better PC. If those are the only two options, though, I'd just got with the Xbox One.
