Is this a good PC for every day use, maybe Minecraft/Warcraft?

Probably will have to upgrade the power supply as well if you want to install a new gpu.

CPU is the processor. GPU is the graphics card.

The CPU is fine, but Intel HD graphics is the bottom of graphics cards (integrated GPU for handling stuff like your display, movies and other low-level graphics), so you want a dedicated GPU to play games.

But Minecraft/Warcraft are pretty low-req, so I'm not sure if it's necessary to upgrade anything.

GPU = Graphics Processing Unit - your graphics card, the thing that accelerates the display of 2D and 3D graphics.

Higher end CPUs typically have more cores/hyper-threading etc. and are clocked higher, but that i5 will be sufficient for gaming. You will most likely need a new power supply to support a decent CPU - but then a $150 or so GPU will serve your purposes well (could probably go cheaper, but a GPU in that range will allow you to play just about any game at high/max settings with that system).

What would an eCollegePC equivalent be, and would it be cheaper to do that?
