Build Your Own Gaming PC

Is this a decent gaming pc?

So I am trying to build a good gaming desktop, and my budget is less than $1300. I have read decent reviews for this website and tried customizing a pc. However I am not a good computer tech so can someone please answer these questions using the summary of the build below? 1)Will this build be able to handle today's games with minimal lag? 2)Are the parts in this pc conflicting with each other in any way? 3)Am I missing something that is fundamental to a functioning pc? 4)Is it worth the money? I would greatly appreciate any help.

  1. One word, awesome

  2. Out of all of what you have written... the only things that actually matter and you have to take into consideration are 1) Memory (which is also called RAM) and you have 8GB of that which is really good, 2)Video Card (also called graphics processing unit), you have 1GB of that which is more than enough to handle almost any game. 3)Hard Drive, 1TB=1000GB which is probably more than what you would ever use or need. 4)Processor, and the one that you have is really good.

    But shit, that thing has a 22" moniter? Thats really really big for a laptop screen, so if your planning to take that computer anywhere other than your inside your house. You should be fine

    So to summarize, yes, that is one hell of a computer :)


  3. For the same price of FX-6100 you can get intel i5 2400 which performs much better
