That computer may be a good deal, though it isn't powerful enough for gaming using on-board graphics with a low-end power supply. Futher inquiries at HP's site seems to indicate that it doesn't ship with 64-bit Windows and is probably loaded down with heaps of crapware. I don't do any major OEM's like Dell or HP for my desktop PC's since they often use parts with questionable quality that aren't off-the-shelf. If I had to get a new computer and decided not to build it myself, I would go for a boutique builder, like Maingear, Velocity Micro, or Puget Systems. You pay more, but you are getting a great PC with, usually, good customer service.
