That's a decent entry-level gaming PC, you won't be maxing games out but you should get away with medium settings at 1920x1080 in most games. Up the GPU to a 670/770 and you'll be able to high/max just about anything with decent performance at 1080p.

Try and up that graphics card at least to the 660 and you'll be golden.

I would try and upgrade the processor and the graphics card. Maybe an i5 4440 and an Nvidia GTX 760

Bare minimum for playing games: 750k + 750 ti

So the processor is good, but you deftly need a new graphics card.

Wish gaming on a PC wasn't so complicated. I'd just like to max most things I play, Mod the hell out of Minecraft, Skyrim. Get Civ 5, The Forest, Arma3, maybe play on my TV so a monitor isn't all needed but would of been nice.

I found the build on newegg. I just really wanted something good for the max of $700 as I doubt I could get any more than that, if that even. As my source isn't that reliable so it's a one hot deal.

My builds cost up to 1K so, yeah. :-/ I struggle with having a small budget.

You paid about $200 more dollars than a system of better performance. The $513 build on the website I posted will outperform your desktop in most games.

To max games, especially ones that aren't out yet i.e. GTA V we don't even know.

For $700 you could have built an excellent PC that maxes almost every game out there. In fact the $700 build on the website I posted absolutely destroys your PC in terms of performance. >_<

$1k isn't a small budget, in fact that's how much I spent on my computer 5 years ago, and until I upgraded my graphics card I was still playing everything on a mix of high/ultra; just upgraded the graphics card in February... I'm still using my CPU from 5 years ago and have yet to run into a problem.

Every modern day graphics card has an HDMI output, so you can just hook up an HDMI cord to your TV, plug in a 360 controller load up steam and use Big Picture Mode. You'd never know it was a PC...

I'll add in a sorry, I can imagine you either feel very sad or pretty mad atm. >_<
