Would this be a good gaming PC?
Capable of running newer games on medium-high with high stable FPS rates on a 1600x900 res?
I've also never bought a DigitalStorm PC, does anyone have any opinions on the company?

800$ is right around my price range, I've found another and am not sure which to buy..

What would you guys here suggest, this one at Newegg

Or the one in the original post?

The first one has a generic PSU that must be avoided.

You should consider building your own at that price point. You will have a better computer I think.

Im not capable of building a computer myself, Im aware that it costs more to buy it prebuilt but I don't have the ability nor the time, just need a suggestion on what a reasonable computer to buy would be, but thanks for replying, could you help me pick one out instead?

Order the parts and pay someone locally to build it? :p 

OK, go to Cyberpower
http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/

midway down the page click on the H61 configurator, then select only these parts:


Case: NZXT Tempest 210 Mid-Tower Gaming Case [-40] (Black Color)

CPU: Intel® Core™ i3-2120 3.30 GHz 3M Intel Smart Cache LGA1155

Cooling Fan: Intel LGA1156 Certified CPU Fan & Heatsink [-20]
It's actually an 1155 heatsink but they will figure that out.

Motherboard: [CrossFireX] ASUS P8Z77-V LX Intel Z77 Chipset DDR3 ATX Mainboard w/ IRST, Lucid Virtu MVP, 7.1 HD Audio, GbLAN, 2x PCIe x16 (1 Gen3, 1 Gen2), 2x PCIe x1 & 3 PCI (Extreme OC Certified) [+46]

Memory: 8GB (4GBx2) DDR3/1333MHz Dual Channel Memory [+26] (Corsair or Major Brand)
Video Card: AMD Radeon HD 7770 1GB 16X PCIe 3.0 Video Card [+65] (Major Brand Powered by AMD)

Power Supply Upgrade: 650 Watts - Corsair CMPSU-650TXV2 80 Plus Power Supply - Quad SLI Ready [+99]
This is overkill but it's the cheapest decent one they had

Hard Drive: 500GB SATA-II 3.0Gb/s 16MB Cache 7200RPM HDD (Single Hard Drive)

Optical Drive: 24X Double Layer Dual Format DVD+-R/+-RW + CD-R/RW Drive (BLACK COLOR)

Sound: HIGH DEFINITION ON-BOARD 7.1 AUDIO

Keyboard: (Keyboard & Mouse Combo) Razer Cyclosa Gaming Keyboard & Abyssus Gaming Mouse [+24]
They insist on selling you one, so might as well get one that is OK


Operating System: Microsoft® Windows 7 Home Premium [+104] (64-bit Edition)


Service: STANDARD WARRANTY: 3-YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY PLUS LIFE-TIME TECHNICAL SUPPORT
Rush Service: NO; READY TO SHIP IN 10~15 BUSINESS DAYS

I think the total is $790 before tax.

Would that computer be able to run newer games at high settings with reasonable steady FPS?
Games like Diablo 3, Dota 2, and League of Legends plus a few others?

Thanks for replying.

That's as good as you'll get for the money. Better in all ways than the ones you were looking at. Stronger CPU and GPU. And yes it should play those games just fine.
