I'll be honest, I look at gaming PCs and my eyes swim. Is this good enough, would spending $25 on this or that be better...do I need more power supply or is that redundant....etc.
I have cash, I just don't have time or the mental wherewithal to deal with deciding what to buy? Yet, I see these drop ship units from Maingear. There are only four choices Good, Better, Best, and Ultimate. I could afford Ultimate, but I honestly think I don't need that much machine. So I'm leaning towards Best. But, is Best 'good enough' to play a game coming out today on HIGH settings? http://www.maingear.com/boutique/pc/configurePrd.asp?idproduct=1434

Yeah, yeah I know I could probably build this for a several hundred less....but I don't have the time. I really don't have the time to build or fix or fuddle with something untested. I'd like something I can plug-in, and and it will work. So what will this thing above do? Will it play something like Far Cry 3 on HIGH settings?
