Hi :) 

Cannot be answered as no graphics card defined....dx 11 cards range from £30 (total rubbish) to £600 (fantastic)

So to make that a GOOD gaming machine you are looking at over £1000....

All the best Brett :)

As the posters above said the graphics card let's the system down. If you selected the hd6950 it would even things out some. I guess your planning on playing bf3 due to the deal you've selected. An HD 6950 would play it on high settings at a good fps. To play it on ultra you would want to look at an HD 7870 or better. I guess it just depends on your budget and use.

i would get a 3570k and wouldnt go near any 7 series ati cards. i get aboot 40fps on bf3 on high with 6850. i would buy a cheap 6870 and use it for a year sell it then get the next generation of cards which will all be pci express 3.0.which yur board and cpu is desighned for .The cards that are pci e 3 now are a rip off. best bang for ur buck to tick ya over till new cards come out is 6870.

The graphics card is central to games though. If you're asking if this system will bottleneck the graphics card, then the answer is no. The i5 2500k is the last step on the CPU gaming ladder before you hit overkill processors. So long as you don't go nuts and get super high end SLI or xFire, your PSU can handle the graphics card and the processor.

Short answer; yes, this computer can handle new games, so long as you have a decent graphics card.
