Pretty good looking system and not all that badly priced either as prebuilts go.

Hey guys I just wanted to say thanks again for your help and info. I ended up taking the Asus back to Best Buy and they manager swapped it out for an HP Envy with an AMD Six-Core FX 6200, 10GB DDR3, 1.5 TB HDD, and a Radeon 7570. While I know its still a prebuilt and most of the parts are entry level, it runs Civ 5 on Med-High settings at 1920x1080 perfectly, even at late game. For me this is the best running PC I have ever had and am pretty satisfied, I just wanted some of your opinions on it.

As long as you're satisfied with the performance, sure. That should also be able to run Skyrim at a good frame rate as long as you don't go crazy with mods, anti-aliasing, and shadows. For Simcity, I'm in the dark as I've not played it. Basically, as long as you're realistic with expectations and are prepared to sacrifice a few bells and whistles, you should be okay as an occasional gamer.

The issue is how much of a pinch in performance you're going to feel with upcoming games, but I guess that's a concern you can leave for the future.
