$gb ram, 600gb hdd, and quad core. That will run any game you want. I forgot what the video is. But if it goes along with the other specs that will be overkill for most games out there.

Short answer: H-H-H-Hell no.


Long answer: no but if you buy a decent graphics card and install that with it (presuming the power supply it comes with is sufficient) then it will be a monster, but if you build a computer you could probably cut the cost in half and get a better computer.

my computer was pretty cheap to build. Quad core intel, 4gb ram, 160bg hdd, 9500 gt card. Should go a path like that. I can play most games on high above 60 fps and it wasnt too expensive. mobo is an asus p5q se. Its a cheaper one and it does it's job.

This. Unless you are putting pictures of your dog on your computer and emailing it to all of your grandma's friends.

This. And no, the power supply probably isn't decent. Knowing computer companies, they try to get by with the bare minimum. Pff. Rip-off. So right there to upgrade you are already out the $$ for a new PSU and GPU.

Oops, I mean it's what you should consider. Hey, it rhymed. That wasn't planned at all.

WIN!

Hey guys, don't leave AMD out of the picture here.

It just depends on if the OP has a preference. If not, then My opinion is that AMD is the way to go for gaming...

I'd recommend a 955.
