Budgeting your money so you can afford a computer can take some time, and patience. But you don’t need to be saving forever just to get a good computer that you can work with, either for school or business. And many of the cheap HP desktop computers under $300 can still have fun with games so it’s not all about work. But be mindful of what you are buying and don’t expect them to be the fastest operating systems either. Most of them come with Intel processors and may not come with the monitor, keyboard or mouse, depending on what you are looking for. Watching the sales though can get you those extras for cheaper than it costs to buy a complete computer setup sometimes.

Some of the available cheap HP desktop computers under $300 include the following:

The Hp pro 3500-MT is a lower end computer that still keeps the gamer in mind. It comes with a 3 GHz Intel Pentium G2030 processor, a 500 GB hard drive and a memory of about 4 GB. The graphics card is about average for the system, but it can still accommodate some of the modern games such as Sims 3, and Crysis 2. It runs on the Windows 8 operating system.

With a HP Pavilion P6-2110, you get a 1 Terabyte hard drive which is unheard of in a computer under the $300 range. You would have to find this in those computer shops that are private or online only though. It also contains a 4 GB SD-RAM to operate several gaming platforms of different types. And this is also a very economical computer as it only uses about 300 watts of electricity when it is operating, saving you money on your power bill as well. It to runs on the Intel processor but don’t let that get you down as it actually runs quite smooth and people will never know you spent so little on it.

Using something different then the Intel processor is the Hp 100-010xt desktop. The basic configuration for this machine is quite typical and it includes a Pentium G2020T dual-core processor, a 4GB memory and a 500 GB hard drive capacity.

There is plenty of room to grow with this computer and whether you want it for fun and entertainment or to get some work done, you will not be disappointed.

The HP XW4400 is another model that runs under the $300 range, and yes it too of course uses the Intel Core 2 Duo 2.66 GHz processor. It comes with a 160 GB hard drive, basic DVD-ROM and has Microsoft Windows XP Professional installed for the software
