is same thing for $250 cheaper, can then add the geforce gt 730 to match the one on amazon for $70 dollars and still come out ahead almost $200.
The video card on that amazon one is pitiful if you want to game.
Personally I would buy:
But there are tons of options.
If you are going to game, need to look at 2 major things: cpu and GPU.
This link will give you some info on GPU's
it gives you info for example that the geforce 730 is the basement to start at and that the Radeon 260x is a good sweet spot
CPU's also depend on game, do you need raw single thread power, or does an octo-core AMD chip better suit you multi-thread optimized game?

Nt really sure what he wants to play on it, He has alot of disk games that just wont run on his laptop. That link you posted, do i have to buy all those peices and put it together myself? Will this desktop play War of Warcraft?

You buy the pieces as a single bundle, (1st link) and then add the GPU (2nd link). Yes you click them all together, they all come with manuals and pictures and most anyone who can put together a ikea shelf or chair can normally follow the directions needed to put them together. Fortunately with a bundle like that the right types of parts that all work together and there is nothing that you have to pick out or make sure will work together.

I've built all my computers for the last 20 years. But it's an expensive hobby to take up if you don't know what you're doing.
Need to make sure you have a good clean non-static environment to assemble it.
Don't forget the thermal paste, and not too little, not too much.
Fully seat the memory cards, but be careful of applying too much force to the motherboard.
Speaking of the MB, make sure the correct risers are used when placing it in the case.
And attaching that cpu cooler can be a real pain sometimes - check to see if you need to install the memory before the cooler for access reasons.
It's not really all that hard, but it's not for everyone.
