She wants a cheap desktop that will allow her to play that Roblox garbage, and she seemed to want to get it from Best Buy if possible (discount or coupon or something, I dunno), so I was hoping you all could give me some suggestions to help out with this.

Thanks for your assistance.

Roblox is a browser game. It will run on literally anything including a cheap tablet or netbook.
Gamefaqs game rating system : 10 = Best Game Ever. 8-9. Crushing dissapointment. Below 8 :Total Garbage. This is getting ridiculous. people agreeing so far 127

Does not need the markup Best Buy price just for that. Maybe try your local Craigslist or another local sale site.

I'm getting a 25% discount on anything in Walmart (one-time purchase) for working on Thanksgiving. I'm still building a PC online instead of getting a prebuilt PC with that discount.

It's not worth it, even with a hefty discount. It's still cheaper to build your own.

How old is your niece? If we’re talking under 10 then I’d suggest the cheapest desktop that's available on Black Friday.

Children are so spoiled nowadays, I remember back in 97 my mom came home from work with an Atari 2600 and Star Wars for my 31st birthday. It was the happiest day of my life and it was my most fond memory as a kid.

Do you really need to troll a help thread?

Don't do that. I wouldn't want that on anyone. The cheapest computer could be some junk that can't even run a web browser.

Really insane deal and will absolutely crush Roblox/Minecraft/lego games. I know this comes with weird VR stuff but even removing the value of that, it will be hard to beat in a prebuilt setup.

I know you should always make your own pc, and I've built my own build that I'm using right now, but those Omen deals at best buy cannot be beaten. They even have higher end ones for anyone else interested.

Just throw in any monitor. Example:

That deal came up in another thread yesterday too. It’s pretty good, especially if you sell those mixed reality glasses on eBay. But if we’re strictly talking about price, she can still easily get under that $699 if she doesn’t need a GPU. Last time I walked in Best Buy all the prebuilts on the shelf were like 300-400 dollars. That’s probably the price range this mom is looking at.
