It's bad. The GT 210 is a very weak card. You'd have to run every one of your games on low, and even then, you wouldn't get a whole lot of performance. You can definitely build something better for less than this.

I'm not sure if I was clear on what I said. By build, I mean homebuilt, not custombuilt.

Where are you getting this computer from? This is a very unbalanced build.
