It's not really a gaming system. Do you have it already? I wouldn't buy it if you don't.

I wouldn't buy it if you dont have it already. But if you do, you can go and add a graphics card.

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).

Buy a graphics card from a computer store, I'd suggest HD 6670 as that's the one best supported by your CPU.

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?

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

Exclude Graphics card and windows, you get just above 200 pounds, but you have much faster components for that price.
