what you want to look for (if you looking for gaming)

1: games use a use more of your GPU then RAM. so 8gig is good but a little overkill. penentilly you only need about 4. so find a PC with a good graphics card.
2: a good CPU. an i3 might not be good for FPS. and should compliment your GPU. if you have a wow GPU and a crappy CPU then it wont work too well.
3: The specs of the PC you are using is good for its price but i wouldnt get it because the ram is overkill, the CPU isnt great and the cost of the overkilled ram could be put toward a better CPU.

Happy Hunting!

It's an above entry-level computer.

But it's not great for gaming. The 8 gigs of RAM? Not a problem, but you won't find much cost savings trying with just 4 gigs, so it wuoldn't help that much.

The i3 is Intel's lower level CPU, and so is the 640.

Is it worth getting? Perhaps, but only if you KNOW what you are getting is a budget system.
