  1. Hi All

    I'm new here and would appreciate your replies to this post.
    I have recently purchased a newly built pc from a friend for 2K but I'm a complete noob when it comes to hardware. Can anyone tell me if the below spec is any good and more to the point will I be able to play high end PC games without my machine blowing up?
    I have run hardware scanners aswell as noted the hardware from a spec sheet provided to me. I was also told this machine was built with crossfire to make gaming much faster, will it have more affect on playing games?
    Thanks in Advance from a computer Noob!

    Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit

    That's a very good system indeed. And a good deal. :)

    Your PC will easily handle all games at maximum settings without breaking a sweat!
