Depends on what games you want to play and if you care to play them on highest settings. For the most part you should be able to run most of the games out there right now but not at high settings on big monitors. You probably want to get some more RAM though. You can also visit a website called Yougamers where they have a program that scans your system and lets you know if you make the requirments and recommendations. If you don't mind installing add-ons to your browser, it's pretty cool. What games are you looking at playing?
