The cpu is really not good and the graphics card is some old shit. You did make a bad decision getting this computer.

I would buy another computer. If you can return it, which I highly doubt, then return it.

The parts that they gave you are not that good for gaming. Now you could still use this as a web surfing computer but for gaming, don't except to get too much performance. If you want another build and you have a budget, let me know and also if I were you I would return it

Hi, I'm also looking for a custom built PC but to be bought from a company as opposed to building myself. Budget of around £500 to play games such as DayZ and Battlefield 4, Thanks!

Sorry man, just letting you know, I would save up some more money because with a build that is 500 euroes, you might be able to play dayz at like 20 fps, but battlefield 4 will be really bad. I would save some more money but if you really want a build ---->http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/2zu1h
