Its not bad,but its only an entry level graphics card you would be hard pushed to play a lot of modern games on full settings at 1080x1920 which games are you looking to play? Do you have a good monitor?

I already have a monitor keyboard and mouse and would be playing games such as Skyrim, Battlefield, the sims, tombraider and flight simulator.
