it should play Far Cry on Medium/High settings (Fx 4100 + HD 7770), and have no issues with minecraft, but it's a bit expensive compared to building your own

this is a similarly-priced build. it has a Piledriver instead of Bulldozer chip, a 7850 2 GB card, an SSD and 1 TB drive

Look at the far cry 3 benchmarks. You're looking at low at 1280x720 with a 7770.

not with a 970 board (its the difference between 970 and 990), but that same board is in the Cyberpower computer as well.

The best thing I can you is the case is cool looking, other than that the remaining pieces dont have much value. That build will not play most games on high settings with lag. You will struggle to record gameplay especially on high settings
