  1. What kind of screen is it? Model number will help out.

    Not a bad deal in my opinion. But be aware the system is of the last generation and you will probably have to upgrade in approximately 1 to 2 years or so.
    New Ryzen CPUs are out along with z270 (intel)/B350 motherboards, supporting DDR4 ram (compared to your DDR3).

    Still not a bad deal for a decent 1920*1080@60fps gaming rig.

  2. The FX8XXX are terribly weak by todays standards and give no upgrade path. A G4560 outperforms it and should cost less, the G4560 also gives great upgrade path.

    I also need to know exact motherboard and PSU to give more feedback.

    That PC is crap. Don't go for it. Build one your self. Like that you can get a PC with great performance for same price.

    Here is the list:

    Buy the GPU after month or two when the price goes down. It will go down by €100 or more.
    This PC is lot more powerful than that prebuilt PC.
    Add second 8GB RAM stick in future. It costs only €50

    If you don't plan on upgrading, I recommend you save up money for a better system. The system you choose will not last you 2-3 year unfortunately (except the graphics card).
