I want to play some pretty hardcore games (ex. Arma 3, Bioshock Infinte). Is this computer good enough to play those games well? At around how many fps?
Also if you vote, please give a brief explanation on why you picked Yes or No

I also forgot to mention my monitor resolution is 1280 x 1024

Yeah it is a good PC. It can max out many games out there and you can play the games you want on High quality. You can play these games around 40-55 fps or even more.

Nothing really stands out about it. God knows what power supply they use too.

For the price it can play games decently, if you wanna self build here:
