Console fanboy here looking to make the jump to PC.

Just bought a pc on the cheap was wondering if this was good for gaming... I gather it is and that I just need a good gpu, also I'm pretty sure it's at 300w of power, so in order to get a decent mid range gpu I'll probably need to upgrade the psu?

Intel i5-3350P (3.10 ghz)

Intel HD graphics will get you nowhere. You need a dedicated GPU to be play most PC games (even old ones).

Come out of your cave, it's 2014. Integrated GPUs are fine. That being said, TC has an i5-3350P and that doesn't have an integrated GPU. TC, grab a 750 Ti and you'll be set.

This does not compute at all... guessing you don't have a 3350P or you don't have Intel HD Graphics -- Intel HD Graphics only comes integrated with the CPU these days, and a 3350P doesn't have integrated graphics. Anyway, if it's some prebuilt computer from HP or whatever, just get a good ~$150 video card and you should be in business.

750 Ti gets you decent performance and uses way less power than most other cards... so perfect for a pre-built that most likely has a 300 watt power supply... it would be best if you could find info on the power supply to verify it can handle a videocard before you go frying your system
