^It is almost always cheaper to build a PC, but the one you listed $1259.99 does that mean your budget for parts is that high now?

If you don't want to put it together yourself. Its good. But you can do better in some areas for the money.

If you can ask your dad what would be a suitable amount of money to pay for a pc, we can wip you one up that will be able to play all the games listed a great performance and it will be cheaper than any store bought computer.

For even $500 we can make you a pretty good build.

Q6600
HD 4850
Corsair 550vx (if you're not overclocking)
Rosewill RCX-z775
2gb- 4gb of DDR2 RAM
HD of your preference, case of your choice, Optical Drive of your choice

Thats about $950 (feels like its missing something for a reason...)

Will this pc be better to get then buying the parts and putting them in? And also will I be able to play the games listed above with the pc my dad offered.
Dude that computer is way over priced. You could make the same computer for about at least 500$ cheaper.
