Not a bad PC but me personally i wouldnt pay £1800 for it. I would expect a Intel Core I5/7 processor and a better Graphics card for that money

I will be claiming the VAT back so it will only be £1398. Would handle the games he wants to play fine.

Sorry would it handle the games he wants to play?

It will comfortably handle the games you listed.

Is it worth the money? As has been said you could easily buy a better spec machine for less money, however the one box form always means a premium price.

Would be be future proof as in terms of spec.

If your son wants to play the latest and greatest games in the future then the graphics on this machine will quickly become unable to cope. Changing the card will, if possible, be much harder than in a standard computer tower.

For the money I would hope for an i7 but the equivalent iMac only has an i5 as well.

He isn't into gaming very much, he just plays Flight Simulator X an odd time. My other son wants Farming Simulator 2011 for Christmas. Will this PC run with good graphics or will it stutter.
