  1. It's not very good at all for games, the CPU is marginal for a gaming system and with no video card you would need to play any newer games on low settings at lower resolution (1024x768 or 720p).

    This looks like a pre-built is that correct? If you absolutetly can't build your own even with help from friends/family, I suggest you look for a used tower office system from Dell, Lenovo, HP, etc... with an i5 CPU and a 300+ watt power supply and buy a GTX 750 Ti video card for it. Will be cheaper and faster than an OEM system that is marketed as a "gaming" system. Most systems that are in your price range that get sold as gaming systems are not at all, cheap power supplies, older motherboards and CPUs, weak video cards.
