More about what games
  1. It's not really a gaming system. Do you have it already? I wouldn't buy it if you don't.
  2. I wouldn't buy it if you dont have it already. But if you do, you can go and add a graphics card.
  3. What's the resolution of your monitor? Judging from the specs of your computer I can't imagine you'd be gaming at 1080p, so I'll assume, say, 1440x900. At that resolution, and with those specs, you'd really be able to play any game, depending on how low you'd want to go with the eye candy. By which I mean you'd have to turn the graphics presets down to low, turn off AA, or MSAA, or FXAA, or whatever else you've got in the game you're playing. That would give you playable (barely) frame rates.

    On a side note, I do agree with above statements. You shouldn't really go into the purchasing of this computer and expect to do any kind of heavy gaming. You're performance will increase tremendously if you pair your APU up with a discrete GPU (around $100).

    And how would one do that?

    + i dont play graphic heavy games
  5. Buy a graphics card from a computer store, I'd suggest HD 6670 as that's the one best supported by your CPU.

    so all i need to do is buy HD 6670 that's really nice :D
  7. Yes but what is your power supply unit and case size? It might not fit!

    Dimensions
    Height: 360mm
    Width: 375mm
    Depth: 180mm
  9. Looks like you've got a mini tower. Mind taking a picture of inside of your case?

    but if you could help me in anyway as i'v never replaced parts of a computer
  12. So you don't have it already? I would advice against buying it, it will not make a good system at all. How much were you gonna pay for it? $400?

    £200
  14. I suppose it doesn't include windows, does it? You'd need to buy that as well if you want to use the PC...

    Here's a much better gaming machine:
