Does my PC have decent specs and how could I go about improving it?

Hi, so I don't really know a lot about computers, and I've just ordered this (http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B008LZI3D2/ref=s9_simh_gw_p147_d0_i1?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=1HQ07912NQSB9VSEAJZV&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=430153987&pf_rd_i=468294) gaming PC, as I've wanted one for a while and this one looks particularly good for the price. But I'm looking at turning upgrading it into a hobby (and playing it of course), so, based on your opinions, what aspects of the hardware could I improve? I'm already planning to overclock the graphics card. Sorry, I'm not being very clear, what part of this PC do you all think that I should upgrade first, and how should I/ what with.

    Prob look at GPU first and w/ that look at the PSU, (know they say 'high grade' but that may well be a marginal PSU, otherwise why not just list the Brand/model - these type rigs are often filled with whatever they can get cheapest - same w/ DRAM, listed as 1333 when 1600/9 is considered entry level
  2. I'm confused. You want to upgrade the PC you *just* bought?

    Alright, thanks a lot. I hadn't even noticed that the PSU wasn't really described, I'll see what I can do when it arrives.
  4. Not straight away, and only if I thought I needed to, if one of the parts wasn't great or something like that.
  5. Keep us updated ;)
