Not bad but the only thing that’s really good about this pc for games anyways is the video card, but then again your cpu would be holding it back big time. Those PSU heat sinks on the side of the hard drive bay would do absolutely nothing, it is somewhat clean so I gave it a 4.

It is ok, psu overkill. And the gfx card + processor so slow bottlenecks.
