Can you raise your budget? You won't get anything gaming capable for $400 in NZ, but $485 gets you what I'd consider the bare minimum to play games.

Hmm

TBH i'd wait and save up some more so you will be able to play games at any respectable framerate or resolution.

1000-1200 NZD would be a good place to start.

However, if you want the most performance, get a refurbished desktop, and install a decent low profile GPU
