Run? Sure. On high-max settings at 1080p? Not in the slightest.
Also that 'save £500' is a scam... that hardware is not worth a penny more over £400.

Replace the CPU with i3 3220 and you're good to go.

Don't forget you still need to add an O/S, Win 7 Home 64 bit, should be good not sure of the cost in your area.

Yeah I know about the O/S :D  Any suggestions on how to make this cheaper? I'm on a tight budget :/
