    CPU could use upgrading and the videocard is just bad.
    Not buying a premade pc is the best idea.

    Yeah but the basic question is will this do for a solid set up for medium settings with around 50+ fps ...

    The video and pcu can always be upgraded later on ... and buying parts mostly costs more atm .. atleast the set ups if stumble upon due to needing to buy W7 wich is a 100 ...

    Videocard and cpu could be upgraded, however that motherboard isn't even decently upgradable. You won't be able to put in a good cpu and the psu will probably be something like 300 watt to keep the old videocard running. The case will probably be small enough to fit everything just barely in there.
    It's just a pain in the neck to upgrade prebuild computers.

    Ok so the mobo is a bit .... shitty ?

    But then my other question remains is this enough current build like it said up in de op for runnin mop medium 50+ fps ?

    Case and videocard and stuff can all be upgraded in the long run.

    Wrong, getting informed before you buy is the best idea. If you are not comfortable building or having someone you know build, then the obvious choice is having a company do it. That being said getting information and making an informed purchase is always the best idea.

    If your looking to build yourself I'd suggest this for a budget build

    PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

    CPU: AMD FX-4170 4.2GHz Quad-Core Processor ($119.99 @ Newegg)
    Motherboard: MSI 970A-G46 ATX AM3+ Motherboard ($77.42 @ NCIX US)
    Memory: Corsair 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1333 Memory ($38.99 @ Newegg)
    Storage: OCZ Agility 3 90GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($49.99 @ Newegg)
    Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($89.99 @ CompUSA)
    Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 6850 1GB Video Card ($134.99 @ Newegg)
    Power Supply: PC Power & Cooling 600W ATX12V Power Supply ($66.79 @ NCIX US)
    Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer ($19.98 @ Outlet PC)
    Total: $598.14
