I have a alternative pc that i was looking at im sure this will do just as fine as that one but im not sure if this can handle the games I mentioned above at max settings (sorry im a bit of a noob at pc's I have had a little experience taking them apart and re-assembling them)
anyway here is the link and thanks for the help I really appreciate it.
