The time to ask was before you bought it.
This is a technical help forum not an ego contest.

Don't worry whether yours is the "latest & greatest" Now that you've got it just use it and if at some future time it fails to perform to your requirements/expectations then look at upgrading. I'm still using a P4 that I built in 2004. Does everything I need but cannot handle the modern games so I just don't even try to install them.
If your system exceeds the minimum requirements for a particular game but it won't run it properly then I'm sure someone on the forum will help sort you out.

You didn't sound like you were trying to get your ego stroked. it was a legitimate questions. (although better asked prior to purchase). Richard is just being a sourpuss because he feels inferior due to his computer being used to type up the 10 commandments. Please don't let his response sour you on this website. The PC you got was a decent deal. You could've done better if you built it yourself or waited on a sale, but no, you didn't get ripped off. A lot of the value in your machine rests in whether or not it can be upgraded. Just make sure to take good care of it. use CCleaner once a week and run the basic scans on it. Use a decent light-weight antivirus like Panda Cloud, Avast or Avira. (stay away from AVG or the big name brands). if you have a few bucks to spend on one, get A-squared Anti-Malware (the pay version). Download Malwarebytes and run a scan every few weeks, and defragment the HD every few months. Also, go to Control Panel>system>advanced>performance settings, and set your PC for "best performance" and you should be good to go. Alsom with a decent video card, your PC should be running pretty nicely.

"Richard is just being a sourpuss because he feels inferior due to his computer being used to type up the 10 commandments"

Well I did learn to write using a rock. ( Slate & Slate pencil ) and No I'm not a sourpuss. Just attempting a little philosophy. In my not inconsiderable number of years I've seen people agonizing over whether they've made a blunder after they've made their purchase / signed on the dotted line / Locked in their mortgage interest rate. My advice is always the same. Once you've made the decision stop looking. You'll only find you missed out on something better and end up eating your heart out.

Just get on with life and next time shop around more before taking the plunge. Life's too short.
