Good First Gaming PC?

Hi guys,
i was on eBay and found this PC:

AMD Trinity A8-5600K 4.0GHz Quad Core APU

16GB of 1333Mhz DDR3 RAM

1TB Hard Drive Storage Space

AMD Radeon HD7560D + HD6670 Graphics Cards

High Performance FM2 Motherboard (MSI FM2-A75MA-E35)

2 Free Games Bundle (Sleeping Dogs and Far Cry 3)

Vibox USB3 Gaming CAse & 450W Standard PSU

Windows OS Not Included

Free 1 Year Warranty

I am on a budget build of around £600 (including everything) and with the monitors mouse etc. it comes to £620. Is it worth?

I want to avoid building one...

I want to be able to play quite intense games like battlefield, far cry too.

Any advice would be great!

Thanks

EDIT: I was thinking of upgrading the PSU to 600-700W if that was possible.

That PC won't be any good for gaming. The graphics card is not powerful enough to play modern games on high settings.

It has too much RAM, which adds to cost.

Ideally, somebody's first gaming computer, when on a budget, should only have 4gb of RAM.

It doesn't include an OS either. Windows 7 would cost you £70.

You could build a computer that's much better than this, for maybe £400, which includes Windows 7 in the price. I know you don't want to build, but it's much cheaper, and it's an essential life skill that's worth embracing.

How much does this PC on ebay cost?

That is overpriced. After you've purchased Windows 7, it would come to £500.

You could build a far better PC for £400 in total.

Like I said, you may not want to build it yourself, but it is the best way to go. You'd be spending less money for a more capable computer, and you'd be learning an essential skill. It's a no brainer :p
