    link to this pc?
    Cos ideally you want an i5 to get the best gaming performance, faster ram, and usually at least a 7850 in my opinion for it to cope with any game quite well.

    Erm, depends on the games.
    Most games are multiplatform crap which makes them either easy to run due to being basic, or impossible due to no optimisation, however with the latter it is then impossible to run them well.
    As for cutting edge games eg. BF3 on ultra, you won't run that to well. Maybe on high, but no more.

    Though your RAM is crap. Buy 1600MHz RAM as that is far better.

    Do look at the 3rd link from the top, and adjust to a 2x 4gb ram 1600, 1tb hard drive and the 7850 with a 600watt xigatek psu, around £600 and very very good or better like the 7870, etc...maybe a faster cpu, nicer looking case or better mobo
