I think the CPU is over kill an i5 4670K would be almost as good an save about $100. 8GB of RAM is all a good gaming machine needs. The rig should be able to handle what ever game you play.

this is to give you an idea on fps at max settings in various games and their testbed is similar to this setup minus the overclock on the cpu, however it will only affect the fps in this setup minimally. the only problem with prebuilt computers is they use cheap power supplies and they often fail. just make sure they have a good warranty or spend the extra money for a quality psu and put it in yourself. on really highend titles such as crysis 3 and bf4 you may have to tweak some settings to run at 60 fps @ 1080p but overall this pc should do you well. if you would like to save some money you really should consider building your own. there are plenty of tutorials and before you buy a prebuilt you should at least watch one and determine if you believe you can do it or not before you decide it is to complicated for you to do. it really isnt complicated at all. but if you really just want to buy a pre-built this shold serve your purpose fine

It's kind of imbalanced, and would be a ton cheaper if you were to do it yourself. First of all, I would say go for the 4770K if anything because you have the option to overclock a decent bit in the future. Even if you don't want to now, trust me, you will later, I though I would never overclock my parts, but I did pretty quickly actually. Also, you only need 8GB of RAM, so that would be cheaper as well. Another thing to keep in mind, the GPU is most important for gaming, so you could go a little cheaper on the CPU side and get a better GPU, such as the 780. Not saying the 770 is bad, I have one and love it, but the reason I have one and not a 760 or something is because I downgraded my CPU to a 6350, which runs fine with the 770. You don't need such a strong processor unless you personally want it.
