Gaming? It's very good for that.
Multiple monitors? No problem.
Gaming across multiple monitors (a.k.a Nvidia Surround)? Not even close.

No. it only has 2g of v ram. You will need a least 4 if not more. Honestly i wouldnt buy that computer. It has a cheap PSU and you could build a computer yourself that would be better and cheaper


Its fine for gaming. its a gaming computer. It takes a lot of Graphic memory to run 3 monitors. if you want a gaming pc in your price range your only option is to build your own. a company is going to charge you a tone of money to put the parts together and slap their badge on it.

On a single 1080p screen it's very good, but with a higher resolution than that, it's going to struggle (1440p would be the maximum resolution I'd try to game on with this PC).

yeah. as good as you can get in the price range for running 3 monitors. I modified the build a bit. you will want to go nvidia if you are running a multi monitor setup. its just easier.

The last computer i linked will run games at 60+ fps at1080.

EDIT: as i said before. if i was you I'd wait till the 6gb 780 comes out in a week or two. it will only be like $50 more and will allow you to play on 3 monitors with ease if you want to. Or you could spend a bit more and get the 780ti in 3 or 6 gb. really it comes down to what you want and your budget.

unless you plan on doing heavy editing or developing i wouldn't get 16 of ram. 8 is more than enough and 16 wont offer any performance increase seeing as it simply wont be used. other than that it looks good. be sure to buy an additional case fan or 2

Might as well toss in windows 8.1 instead, it will boost performance slightly (most noticeable in BF4). If you don't want to deal with that terrible UI, just download Classic Shell.
