Budget Gaming PC - is this worth it or anything better out there?

  aca 18:19 26 Aug 2013

My son is looking for gaming pc - to play latest games on medium to high settings. Limited budget of £500. Have found spec below for just over £500 (and will need to get OS). Grateful for views and alternative suggestions on how he can get better performance at this price. many thanks

You would need a physical hard drive? the only one in your spec is the 120gb ssd,the video cards fine but you dont need 16gb ram ,8gb will be plenty

Not so sure about the cpu or psu,Chronos 2nd will hopefully make some comment about this
