Not sure if this is the correct place to put this, apologies if it is, move if need be.

First let me start off by saying I'm not a tech savvy person so id prefer not to have to upgrade it myself or create a new one..
I am currently looking for a new gaming PC for a reasonable price, I have had my eye on one (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) and was wondering if it was worth the money?
I don't need it to be overkill ultra graphics.. no 16xAA, just to be able to run the newer releases on medium-high with a high fps rate.

Also judging by the reviews the power supply is a problem, what would be a good replacement, preferable also from the Newegg website if possible.. but if not a local store would work as well.

Thanks in advance!

What is the price range you want to stay under ? Keep in mind prebuilt PCs will cost a few 100 more vs building it yourself, if you dont feel that you can do it yoursef, do you know anyone to help you build one ?

Im willing to spend a little extra for the manual labor of building one of course, I feel as if there's a risk of screwing it up and ending up with dead hardware,and no I don't know anyone personally I can ask to help me out with it also my budget should allow about up to about 900 or so which I think should be able to get me what I'm looking for.

Perhaps I could provide a little more info..

I'll name a few games I'm wanting to play smoothly with decent settings (medium graphic settings,45+ FPS)

Diablo 3
Team Fortress 2
Fallout New Vegas
Defense of The Ancients 2

Playing on a 1600 x 900 monitor, this computer should be able to run these fine right?
If not where could I find another to get more for what I'm looking to pay?

Okay, Thanks for the help Niklas_13.
One last thing would it last me and not require upgrading in the next 6 months or later down the line?

Alright then, thanks again!
Having the opinion of atleast one person that knows what they're doing and talking about takes a huge load off.
