Default Should I get this computer

I want to buy this computer:
Core i3 Desktop PC, 1.5TB HD, 8GB DDR3 1333 RAM, Blu-Ray, 24" Screen
I need a new computer because I like to play games. I want to play games at least on med settings while having good frame rate.
Games like Starcraft 2, dead space 2, Cod games, bfbc2
I ESPECIALLY want to get this computer for BF3. I am on a budget and this is pretty much the only choice I see that I think will run it on med-high set with a resolution on 12xx times 1xxx.
I just want to know if this is a good computer to buy. I probably can upgrade at least 1 part of this computer like the CPU or the GPU
Which one would be the best to upgrade?
Should I even get this computer?
Please tell me the pros and cons about the CPU and GUP
Thank you~!

PS I know a lot of you on here have AWESOME rigs. I dont want to be like that. I just want a decent computer that can run games. I cant afford to buy so many things just to play games.

Last thing If I could UPGRADE just ONE thing on this computer, which would it be and why?

I see only one thing wrong with this computer. The seller states that the i3 processor is a quad core but I believe that i3 processors are only dual cores at most. The video card should be more than enough for Battlefield 3 and the other games you mentioned. Everything in this system is great and is only $400. If I built this computer on newegg it would be around $1400 so this is an amazing deal. I would get it while you can.

The one thing I might upgrade is the power supply. It should be fine but 650W doesn't seem like a lot for all that's in there.

EDIT: 650W is plenty for everything in there. I honestly would upgrade the video card then even though it is still a great card.

he doesnt mention what motherboard is included or if it is included at all. also like Tkess said you will need a new gfx card if you plan on running those games at that monitors 1080p resolution
