It'll be great for all new games, though my personal recommendation would be an i5 2500 instead. Bulldozer, while cheaper, is about the same performance (or, even less performance where games are concerned) for a much higher power consumption.

Edit: Ah, just realised this is a pre-built PC, in which case yes, it'll do fine.
