Default Is this a good computer?

Is this computer good enough as it is, to play games like Everquest 2 efficiently, or are more upgrades necessary, and if so what should I add additionally?

You can build that yourself for less than $700.

If you dont want to physically build it yourself, we can have one built at cheaper sites than that one you listed. Just let us know your budget and what you will use it for. Cheers.
