How can it come with a graphic card from Q1 2014?
The gtx745 is a bad graphic card. Not good for modern gaming and should be the first thing you upgrade.
(given your PSU supports it)

Don't know if you over payed though. Looks alright for the money. You did get a monitor included in the package.
So doesn't look like a bad buy. But it's not a real gaming computer in my book.

Not to sure I bought it the same day mine broke it, it seemed best without breaking the bank, and the psu will need to be upgraded
