If you can assemble a computer yourself then the answer is no

Ahhh I see, well if you don't want to build yourself, this computer would do you just fine and dandy.

The GPU is quite weak in my opinion, but it'll still give you good performance nontheless :)

really?
I checked some benchmarks and it seems that it can run BF3 at about 40 or so frames at maximum settings, seems fine to me :p

Which is why I said "but it'll still give you good performance nonetheless" :lol:

The GTX 560 is a rebadged GTX 460 1GB that is highly factory overclocked. A stock GTX 460 is clocked 675-1350-1800 while a stock GTX 560 is clocked at 810-1620-2000. That is the only difference.

I have had my GTX 460 1GB since the week the 460 was released close to 2 years ago and from day 1 I have had it overclocked to 820-1640-2000.

It has been a great card that lets me max almost every game I play at 1920 x 1080. Skyrim, Deus Ex, Dragon Age Origins/II, Fallout 3/NV, Far Cry/2 ect. I do not really play first person shooters though and I don't expect it would do so well in some of the more demanding games like Metro 2033 or BF3. So hopefully this gives you a reasonable expectation of what a GTX 560 can do. If you want to play the newest, most demanding games you might want to try for a GTX 560 Ti or an HD 7850.

I am finally going to upgrade when the GTX 660 / 660 Ti come out at least if they are as good as I expect them to be.
