Errrm that's not a bad computer actually.

MY only concern is it's a little dated.

I'm not entirely sure how games can utilize dual processors.

In fact re-reading that, i'm not sure I would bother, I mean they are hyperthreadding processors which means they are actually only single core, granted there are two of them but i'd still stay away.

Instead look at something like this: Zoostorm Desktop PC - Desktops | Ebuyer.com

You would need an operating system and an upgraded graphics card, but it would be a lot better than the outdated ebay link.

You need to find out what the Motherboard is first as to a Graphics Card, (Chipset AMD A55 & PSU is 300w)
