The one I want to buy is an open box version that is at $960. What do you think?

No. It's a typical Alienware: Too much CPU power and not enough GPU power. It's gonna suck for gaming unless you swap out that garbage graphics card.

Not if you want to game on it. It has a gt645, not really a gaming card. It would play things a lot better than the 360/PS3 but it's not a part I would recommend picking up at this time.

Oh god no. It's got a multimedia graphics card not a gaming card in it. If you're going to spend almost a thousand dollars you don't want a PC that is going to run 2015's game on lowest settings.

At least you asked first. That thing is vastly overpriced for what you get as the others said.

Saw this in a previous topic.
It is a little more money but has a much better GPU, key for a good gaming PC.
