Hey guys, so my friend is finally getting into PC gaming and hes currently looking for a system, his dad is keane to get a pre-built one, he knows building one is better, i have told him that but he knows he wants a pre built one so thats what hes been looking for. He found this one last night and I'm no expert so I thought I'd put it to you guys, heres the amazon link: http://www.amazon.co.uk/VIBOX-Apache-Package-Multimedia...
The specs are:
4.2GHz AMD FX 6350 Six-Core Vishera Processor (Turbo Speed 4.2GHz)
16GB of DDR3 1600Mhz RAM
2000GB (2TB) Hard Drive Storage Space
AMD Radeon R9 270 2GB Dedicated Advanced Graphics Card
Gigabyte 78LMT-USB3 Motherboard & Drivers

It comes with a monitor, keyboard and mouse aswell as 3 games inc. Battlefield 4.

Would it be able to run games such as BF3/4 DayZ, Titanfall, Black Ops 2 etc.

I know its probably very overpriced but he is just looking for an easy one time buy experience and with this bundle he seems to be happy to pay the price. Im not asking if its worth the price cos i know it is not, but can it run the games I stated above?

Thanks for reading. Let me know please :-)

It's really not bad for the price. It will be able to run all modern games at good fps.

Short answer:
Definitely more than worth the price actually.
And yes it can run those and I would go so far as to say it can run ANY newer game, though obviously not maxed.

I'd go check out cyberpower PC uk for a custom built rig at that price. I did a quick configure and came out with something with twice the power (possibly more) for slighty more. However it doesn't include the free games.

The problem with CyberPowerPC is that they use the minimum PSU required so if you want to upgrade in the future you'd also have to upgrade the PSU.

In the build configured above I used a Corsair Cx750 or 650w so plenty of power to spare.
