Looks like a decent system.
Too bad that the most important piece of hardware for gaming performance is the weakest in the system.
The Graphic card.
What are you going to be playing on it? just casual stuff?

What is the make, model, and wattage of the power supply? While a GFX card is the main beast for gaming the PSU is the heart of the beast. If it craps out then the beast dies... and it can take other components with it.

Make sure your Power Supply is a decent model and has PCIE power outputs and then pick up a modern half decent graphics card like an R9 380 or higher. If you want something relatively low end that will work with pretty much any power supply get a basic, used GTX 750Ti for about $75 US. It will still smoke what you have now.
