The CPU and memory seem alright. The graphics card won't hold up for modern games (I should know since I used to use that exact card). The PSU will get the job done for what you've got, but I'd recommend at least a 450W PSU.

4/10 at best. Why would you get an APU and a dedicated nVidia card? I'm pretty sure that the APU's graphics are better than the GT 620 anyway. And with an APU, you want to at least have 1866 MHz RAM.

What is your budget? Do you need a prebuilt, or can you build your own?

My budget is about $750 (£500) for the unit itself excluding Windows, monitor ect
Prebuilt or building my own is fine

yea for 750 you should be able to build something a bit more powerful....do you want and AMD system or Intel or do you have any preference....and what is the purpose of the PC....to play games at mid to high settings or more casual stuff like surfing the web and casual programs and games?
