The weakest link there is the graphics card. It'll play the newest games, but on low-medium for decent frame-rates.

Not worth it, if you watch a few videos you can build one yourself with much better parts for the same money.

Are there any package deals where you can buy all the parts necessary in one purchase or do I need to buy each part individually?
