Well the CPU is sandy bridge which is getting pretty old, and it's not like it's a high lvl one either, so not sure how long it will stay relevant in the gaming world.

The risk of buying premade is you don't know what's happened to it. The parts already have 1 year of use on them, maybe even out of warranty now. You take a lot of responsibility this way.

If you already have a case, GPU and PSU then I think you'd get a best bang for your buck by just buying your components new. You'll have warranty, better hardware than that build and also get to choose the parts you want.

Do you have a copy of windows or will you need that to?

Yea, that's a much better build than the one in the OP. I'd just change the ram to 2x4gb though.

This is your computer in US$, most of the parts were unable to be found in Australia so couldn't get an estimate. However it does look pretty good if your wanting a pre-built and not put in the effort to build one. Everyone here will agree that building your own will still be cheaper since you already have a decent GPU, PSU, and case. With those you can easily buy a better CPU and motherboard and even another proper Graphics Card for your older case.
