That would do just fine. But how much are you paying for it? How used is it?

Those specs are pretty cheap for $600. And yes, it's a good build for decent gaming. By decent, I mean it might be able to/might not be able to play future games. If you plan on playing these upcoming games that is about to be released, look into a new GPU.

Graphics Processing Unit, also known as Graphics Card/VGA/GPU/GFX/etc.

I love it! The Westinghouse looks great and it works wonderfully. Thing is, a week after I got it, I saw a pixel that I was thought was a dead one, but a few days later, it just disappeared.
