    No because it has a weak graphics card. Do not buy pre-built systems from HP and expect it to play games out of the box.

    By the way its going im assuming you do not want to build your own system and would rather purchase a pre-built one correct? Here is my suggestion:

    By from cyberpowerpc.com or ibuypower.com as they both offer custom gaming rigs at affordable prices.

    Here let me see if I can throw and example build together to fit your needs at the last price of 1500.

    This is just a quick example I made, but you can essentially customize the machine to do whatever you want!
