Welcome to the forums :)

You can work on a gaming PC, and play games on a PC you work on.

The PC needs to meet the requirements for the games and/or your work. But as long as it meets the requirements, you can use just 1 PC for anything you want.

It's not like a console, where it's completely different hardware, with a different operating system, that doesn't support 'work' software.

Are you looking at getting a PC?

Yeah hello. I was looking at a site called "made in china" the sell a 1TB gaming desktop for only €295 what a deal . I need to get one to download games to a micro sd card to play on a Sinclair zx spectrum vega ( it's a small emulator ). I'm not really sure how to do that though ?could you help me there . I have a android but when I download the game on it it says "can't open file " do I need a zip file or something like that , I see a lot of that sort of thing but I'm really not sure what to buy???

"1TB gaming PC" doesn't mean anything. It's like saying "box with screen" - that could be a phone, or it could be the thermostat for your central heating. Any PC worth being called a gaming PC would be £500 at a minimum, more likely £650-800.

The forums belong to PC Specialist who build and sell custom PCs and laptops. We can't advise on competitors' specs and offers from other stores, and PCS don't have anything in the 300€ price range.

That said, you should be able to download the files on any device and put them on a micro SD card without needing a PC though. It doesn't need to be done on a PC as far as I can see.

The manual for your console explains how to do what you want to do. You can get a copy of the manual here:

6. Loading additional games
In addition to the 1000 games supplied, you might wish to play other
ZX Spectrum games on your Vega. These may be downloaded from
various sources on the internet, provided that the site gives you the
legal right to do so. From time to time additional games will be made
available for download from the ZX Spectrum Vega website

To play additional games on your Vega, they must be stored on a micro
SD card. A micro SD card is a type of removable memory card used to
store information. Physically it is the smallest size SD card available,
and requires an adapter so that they will fit into a slot provided on a
computer for standard SD cards. Such adapters are often supplied with
the micro SD card when purchased.
Playing games stored on a micro SD card
1. Using a computer, download the game files you wish to play,
and store them on a micro SD card. The Vega supports .tap,
.z80 and .szx file formats only.

2. Insert the SD card into the Vega, making sure that it is fully
inserted into the slot.
3. The Vega will detect the SD card and allow you to access the
games on the SD card by pressing button [A].
4. On pressing button [A], Vega will list the games it finds on the
SD card in the game menu, replacing the built-in games.
5. If you have folders on your SD card, on pressing button [A] the
Vega will ask you which folder you wish to scan for games. It
is recommended that you store your games in folders for easy
access as there is a limit to the total number of files the Vega
can load at once.
6. To switch back to the built-in games, press button [A].
While the Vega is accessing the SD card, the power indicator will flash.
You should not remove the SD card while the indicator is flashing.

In addition to providing a virtual keyboard, the Vega also emulates the
Kempston joystick. To quickly configure a game loaded from an SD
card for play on the Vega, use the virtual keyboard to navigate the
game's options, and select the game's Kempston joystick mode, if
supported.
Further instructions for configuring additional games for play on the
Vega can be found on the ZX Spectrum Vega website
Your console isn't something we can support in detail here, but I don't think your problem is that you need a PC.
