Upgrade your graphics card to a 650 and personally I'd go with a Intel Processor instead if AMD

I wouldn't use that rig for anything more than Office programs and browsing the internet. The CPU is the weakest of a line of weak CPU's and the graphics are known to be laughable.

Whats your budget? I might be able to find a better pre-built for you (unless you change your mind and build it yourself).

id like to keep my budget in between 5-700 if possible. and ive been thinking intel also.

an even if the cpu/graphics are weak, dont you think for what i want it to use the pc for it would work just fine?

Are you willing to build it yourself? You will get MUCH more for your money. Currently this computer won't run most games on low settings.

I appriciate the opinions and comments but i am not using this for prime gaming. I play 1 game, and it is World of Tanks, wich is not graphics heavy at all. I use my computer for music, and internet browsing. i am using it for one game, that is it. in your opinion, is this an ok computer or what i am going to use it for?

That GPU won't play it at high settings. I looked it up and you really want a gtx 650 or hd 7750. World of tanks recommends an nvidia 8800gt in order to get medium/high settings.

Here is a benchmark for the 8800gt compared to a gt640 (much much better than your 610). http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/521?vs=612

I would strongly recommend a gtx650 or hd7750/7770 for playing at 1080p.
