Pros: You can look at the specs yourself, this is a very good entry - mid level gaming computer. It looks good and offers some room for further customization. This is my first gaming rig, and it has given me reason to learn a lot about everything that goes into building one of these machines, eventually I plan on upgrading several parts to bump the performance and inch myself towards owning a high end pc using this pc as the foundation. Although eventually it will need upgrades, it works just fine with everything at stock. I play most of my games on medium - medium/high settings because I simply don't need to play on ultra all the time. The most demanding games I play on the m - m/h settings are games like and including BF4 and AC:U. All games are able to maintain 30-60fps at 1080. And less demanding games run even better obviously.

Cons: Very minor, it gets hotter then is recommended but upgrading from stock fans and cpu coolers will fix this issue and is expected when buying a pre-built rig. The mother board is not currently listed on the specifications. In case any body is wondering it is the -- MSI 760GMA-P34(FX) AM3+ AMD 760G SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard -- you can look it up.

Overall Review: Very happy with the buy. Specific things I will probably have to upgrade in the future (not including fans and coolers because that is a given) if only to future proof the rig are the mobo and gpu. Thoughts on the rest of the parts: The 8320 is a fine cpu, provided you have the coolers, mobo (which would have to be upgraded), and psu to overclock it up to or past 4.0GHz. Keeping all this at stock is fine for now to but maybe not in a year or two. The gtx960 2gb is a fine gpu, but I feel that within the year, 2GB cards will only be good to meet minimum requirements in most AAA games. The 500w psu is fine, rigs with only one gpu do not need any more then that, at most an upgrade to a 625w 80+ bronze psu might be somewhat justified but only if you plan on OC the 8320 and upgrading the gpu. The 500GB HDD is fine, just maintain your game or video library and 500gb is more then enough. The 8gb ram is already good enough but if you want to future proof, you can easily upgrade this to 16gb with the current mobo (even more if you upgrade the mobo). The case looks nice, black and red color scheme on anything almost always looks cool. :-D.
