:welcome:  thesaud.

It sounds a reasonable configuration, but it's value depends on the quality of the parts.  Is it new, or used?

Can you supply us a little more info please.

The brand and model of,

The PSU.

The HDD.

The Motherboard.

The case.

The version of the Operating System? if installed.

It will be OK for casual gaming, medium display, not a huge amount of fine detail, but not for gaming with ultra high setting.

The i7 is a bit over the top and the graphics card is a bit weak.

An i5 4690/k with a better GPU, like a GTX 960 or Radeon R9 280 would be more balanced with better performance.


does the shop build computers to a customers specification?


 Some info for you.
