it should play most games well on 1200x1024 but if you want 1920x1080 then i would suggest building your own computer or buying a higher end pre built rig. Also AMD processors arent the best for gaming, Intel's would perform better but your going to pay for it.

Yeah, that should be a pretty good gaming PC. The video card would be consider mid-range gaming and should handle just about anything out today, albeit not at the highest resolutions.

The CPU is OK, but I'd go Intel i3/i5 or FX 4100 series for gaming. Games won't make use of all 6 cores in the FX6100 and the clock speed is lower on the 6100 than on 4100. So you are probably paying more for less in that regard.

Novatech one
For a prebuilt PC it has a surprisingly good graphics card but thats one of the worst gaming CPUs from a value point of view
Mesh one
Thats what I expect from a prebuilt one, the CPU is good but the graphics card will not even play most modern games, the only upgrade option is not much better.
I suggest you find a site that you can totally customise the build (or build yourself) and get an i3 cpu & the Radeon 7850 or better.
