Really depends on the game

Judging by the specs I can read (though the language included in the specs is a little confusing for me); it generally looks good, right up til I see the videocard you have chosen.

If you're looking at building a PC that will run the likes of Crysis2, then you'll be looking at something from the 6800 series (minimum) to the 6900 series.
But with these new suggestions; comes with some added expenses, mainly the PSU-you'll be needing a power supply of at the minimum 500 watts to 750 watts (from a reputable vendor), depending on the videocard you choose. Here's a great link for reviewing which videocard you're interested in with specifications and system requirements.

Also included on their pages are additional inks for recommended power supplies.

Hope this starts to help you along the path of your build

That's a gamer machine.

The GPU is near the top (see the usual Tomshardware best video for the money list) and the only quibble I can think of are 2 things.

1. Be sure the power supply is proper for this system.
2. Be sure the maker supplies EXACT instructions for installing Windows.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
