Now I've read mixed reviews on ibuypowerpc, I know a common complaint is they use "cheap" parts. Basically, long story short I want to get back into PC gaming. I really don't plan on playing too many major games. The biggest game I plan on maybe getting into is Battlefield 4. Other than that I want to play my old games: Warcraft: The Frozen Throne, Counter Strike, Roller Coaster Tycoon, Unreal Tournament 99, and maybe I'll see what all the fuss is over League of Legends.

So, I'm just wondering what the overall verdict is on this PC for the price. As you can see on Best Buy it has great reviews, but when I try to look at other websites for reviews there's nothing about it, so I'm assuming it's a Best Buy type special. In case anyone asks why I just don't build a PC, to be completely honest I'm just too lazy. I built my first computer when I was in high school and it was a lot of fun, but now-a-days I just want to buy it ready to go. Thanks for the replies in advance, feel free to offer any alternatives!

no gpu yet but at least it's future proofed

all you have to do is check the mobo manual for the power connectors and pop in the usb 3.0 by itself

Not for that price.
No SSD
Outdated GPU
i5
Not even Win8.1

Aside from tossing the ibuypowerpc coin, I wouldn't want to get a 650.
