Is this a good gaming PC? and will it handle the latest and greatest games?
I don't think its very good PC for Gaming.
For 1000$, this PC is not worth, you can make a better custom made PC much better than this one with same price.
Everything is fine in the above config, except the Graphic Card.
If you want to play games, than you need to get some good graphic card, you can go for GTX 460 or ATI 5770 if you are seriously considering Gaming.
