http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VIBOX-COBRA-112-QUAD-CORE-i5-...

Specs:

Intel i5 2500K Quad Core CPU
8GB 1333Mhz DDR3 RAM
2TB Hard Drive Storage Space
NvidIa GeForce GTX 560 Graphics Card
High Performance Motherboard
Stylish Tower Case & 500W PSU

I have a few concerns about this PC package. I know for a fact that the CPU/RAM is sufficient, and the HDD seems sufficient too.
However I have doubts about the GPU/PSU.

The PSU is 500w, and the minimum requirements for the GTX 560 is 450w, could that cause an issue being so close to the minimum requirement?

Also, I wanted to get the GTX 560ti, but it seems computers with this GPU are a lot more expensive. Will I be missing out on much? Is the GTX 560 still a very good GPU? I'm currently using an NVIDIA GeForce 9600GT, so I know it will still be a huge upgrade in comparison. I intend to play games such as ARMA 2 on high settings with this new PC, due to my current PC running them on the lowest settings at 30fps.

Meh.

I would say it is smack dab in the middle of mid-range.

man, everyone's build is the same these days. don't worry man. The gtx 560 is still pretty good. Look up gameplays on YT. If it's not suitable for you, think of something that can fit you a bit better. If you are gaming on like 1600x900, I bet you can get a good 40 fps and above. It all depends on your resolution and what settings you are playing on.
