I really wanna upgrade my PC. I have a windows 7 laptop right now, but am looking for a desktop that  is also windows 7. I use my  PC for a lot of gaming, and would like to know if it can run a lot of new games, like Arma 3 on high settings. Im open to suggestions under $600.

Thanks

Don't think much of the reviews of that system, check out the one below.

Hi, the iBuyPower desktop from BestBuy uses a low end graphics card (HD6450) which will not be able to play Armas 3 on high settings. Your best bet is to find a basic desktop that has a decent CPU and install a dedicated graphics card to the desktop.

BUILD IT YOURSELF!!!

 

Does your $600 include a copy of Windows? Or do you already own a copy (Win 7 or later) that you can use? If the $600 has to include a copy of Windows you aren't going to get much of a decent system.

 

I will tell you right now that you're going to be playing ARMA 3 on LOW settings and getting a relatively crappy framerate with this budget. With $1000 that would be a whole other story.

I think you should go for the normal one that would be better for you.
