Basic to mid end gaming, not worth it. Actually its not really worth it at all, waste of money for an overkill pointless system, not to be blunt lol sorry. Dont think of future-proofing either, dont invest such money in a system that will last for 5 to 7 years. Instead, invest in somthing easier that will still handle current games and maybe games for the next year to three years at high settings if you desire the graphical eye candy. It will only cost around 1300-1600 dollars, instead of buying a system now for much more than that and only have the potential to upgrade that expensive system which then even costs more. You just get tied up, instead of just building a whole new one that can then handle games and applications smoothly and easily for again around 1600 dollars. Less money, less hassle.
