Don't mind him. he's a troll. For 700 euro it's what you'd expect. You will be able to run games very well on it. Max setting most if not all of them. If you don't plan on replacing it or it's component I do suggest go for a 3+ years warranty.

Btw don't sweat it, no mods around so no penalty for off topics.

do not pay attention to him he has been trolling the forum all evening. as for the system, i am not sure but it will run most new games; question is for how long are you willing to postpone a ne purchase?

No, he wants to say you'll probably want to replace it in 3 years. But from experience I can tell you you'll still probably be able to play new games at medium-high settings in 4 or so years. So yeah, it's a good price for that computer and yeah again it's a good computer for playing games.

I have that card and I play WOT on full details in 1920x1080 with 40-70fps so you should be happy too.

I also have a slower CPU.

Depends on what you want to do with it and how much you would like to spend.

Example of a better one

Thats 660€ + you need an HDD

Has more than tripple the gaming power from the one before.

World of Tanks graphics are really old... what limiting your fps is the single core cpu performance.

Remember he's not building a 2000 euro computer here and the card is roughly the equivalent of a GTS 450 in performance. It's good. Really is a solid computer for gaming.

If he wants to spend 699€ he should still get the best for that. What´s in the first post is not worth buying as the overall system balance is horrible.

And yours is better with a 520W PUS and no HDD? Not to mention the software he gets with it. If he's not computer literate it's a good deal to have a complete package to start with. I think you forget the bad old days when you didn't know anything about computers either...

If you know how to handle a screwdriver then you can build your own rig... it's cheaper and/or you will get better components for the same money as your example besides that graphics card is way too crappy.

You need a 6850/6870 or wait for the 7000 series.
