Its Ok, you could build a better PC for around the same price. That GPU is kinda weak.

The GPU is weak for gaming. Everything else is decent. I wonder if the BIOS is overclock friendly.

I dont see a motherboard model and brand, and the video card is NOT good for gaming.

Q8xxx isn't that great for gaming... looks more like a media center over a gamer.
