Hello! This is my first gaming PC. I've been thinking about buying one for a while, and found a website called

Here's the web page of the computer:

Here are the stats:
Case: IN WIN Maelstorm (full tower)

AMD Processor: AMD PHENOM II x4 3.2GHz Black Edition (Quad Core)

CPU Cooling: Cooler Master RR-H101 (I don't know much about cooling)

AMD Motherboard: ASUS M4A78LT [HDMI DVI] {4 DDR3 Slots Max 1600MHz}

Overclocking: Stock Speed

Memory: 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1333MHz

Primary Hard Drive: 1TB 7200 RPM

1st Optical Drive: DVD writer

Graphics Card: Nvidia Geforce GTX 570 1.2GB (min. 700 Watt power supply)

[SLI / Crossfire] Second Video Card: Should I do this?

Power Supply: 800 watt

Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium (Is this 64 bit?)

Are these parts compatible? I plan to run Skyrim, Metro 2033, Mass Effect, Portal 2, Half life 2, and possibly Battlefield 3 on this PC. Will this be able to run these game on high? I plan on buying a 25 inch monitor.

Thanks! :ange:

Yes, all those parts appear to be compatible.

However, it might be significantly cheaper to build yourself. How much does this system cost? The link is a 404.
