So I am going to buy a new computer and focus on gaming.
Here are the specs:
-Celeron® Dual Core G530 (2.4GHz, 2MB, 850MHz , LGA1155) BOX
4GB DDR3 1333MHz
-500GB, SATA2, 7200rpm, 16MB
-DVDRW +R 22x, -R 22x, +RW 8x, -RW 6x, DVD 16x, CDRWR 48x48x40x
-H61, LGA1155, DDR3, PCI-E, SB5.1, Lan, SATA, mATX
-ATX 400W, JNC RJA 8805 ( black)
So can this computer handle games like Battlefield 3 ; Assassins Creed 1,2,3 ; Bioshock 1,2 etc... At medium to high settings and if its possible to run with Fraps.
If this computer just can't handle it would you mind recommending some that will for around 250-300 euro .
Thanks in advance.

Forget the Celeron for gaming . You Most likely want a I5 and a decent Video card. Your list of specifications indicate a economy computer for Internet and Microsoft Office. No Operating System?

The system lacks a graphics card which basically will not enable you to play those games and that Celeron could possibly bottleneck the graphics card if you were to get a high end card. BF3 at medium to high settings is pretty intensive and the onboard graphics can in no way handle it also the performance would also vary on the resolution that the game is played on.

Agree with rotor, you have described a mild everyday computer. You will be hard pressed to build a gaming rig that will give you the performance you want on the games listed for 300 Euros. A decent video card will set you back at least 100USD which is about 78 EUROS. My advice is to save a few hundred more and not sell yourself short trying to build a machine today.
