Will this run games smoothly? such as black ops, mass effect and dragons age?

itl run some games smoothly, wouldnt trust it with black ops tho as its very MEMORY hungry. id recommend about 4gb. whats your price range? as you can build a very good gaming pc for around £400-£500.

seriously tho building a pc is far better.

I very much doubt it

At full spec? No.
At low specs? Possibly...

With that system it appears you are paying extra for the design and small casing rather than the performance of the components.

For around £380-£400 you can build a system with a quad core processor, 4GB DDR3 RAM and a better graphics card.

Dragon age will run on it according to this review but just very badly and on low settings.

This would be a good PC for the money if you build it yourself, 3for the money you want to spend i would go for the AMD as its better then the i5 and on par with low to mid range i7 and for doing lots of things at once its better then the intel, I think, the intel comes into its own for other things.

To be honest all these sites which allow you to build up from their base unit will stiff you on prices as they need to make a profit. You are better off making it yourself and asking for help with anything you are unsure of on here or on HUKD. People like to be helpful as it gives them a warm/superior feeling inside. :D

See Chuckles1001 just proved my point

The suggestions here are about right.
Incidentally the computer Chuckles1001 suggested would be about £869 on dell. it might look a bit nicer but it won't run any better or have room for expansion.

Thanks Trog1, for the comments :)

OP all you need is a normal philips screwdriver and a small one, everything els eyou will get in the boxes of parts, you can get a nicer screwless case, but i dont like them tbh. Also this is a very good Setup, and you wont get this anywhere prebuild for less then £200 more then what i just said and as trog1 said even more from a big brand like dell
