Is this a decent non-gaming PC

The most I'd probably do is Minecraft or Warcraft occasionally, so I didn't go overboard with a gfx card.

As I said, I don't want to run Skyrim on Ultra, anything major. Just something that's better than my current HP I have.

Thanks. I was using eCollegePC as recommended by a friend because I would prefer to spend the extra money and have them set it up for me. I know that's frowned upon, but I'd rather have it done my pros. Is the XFX card you linked necessary for just casual gaming?
