We’ve had a lot of demand recently for cheap PCs that can run Minecraft so here we’ve selected some of the best cheap gaming desktops to run Minecraft. We’ve tried to keep all of the desktops at around the $500 mark so that we feel they are reasonably priced. If you are thinking about looking around and doing some of your own research into buying a new PC for Minecraft then make sure to check out our System Requirements page.
