You can built that same system (preferably with a more powerful graphics card) for a lot less on your own. To answer your question directly though, it will handle most games at medium to medium-high settings with no anti-aliasing at 1080p. The motherboard in it is great and built for overclocking but the CPU they chose is locked and will not overclock much more than a couple hundred mhz. The new GTX 700 series cards are out now as well, so they raise performance for the same price as a GTX 650ti, seems like you might consider a self built model instead. It is just too under powered for the price.
