Really depends on the games you want to play and in how much detail for a bit more money the fusion arrow is a better spec,my son has this pc and it runs any game hes thrown at it in high or ultra graphics

That's a fairly good build that will handle most games well. The only change I would make is to have more than 8GB of RAM as many games can go over this amount now.

Just a bit of future-proofing.
