Is 'The Destroyer' good for what I need ?

OK, I have decided after an irritating month of exams and decision making that I am no longer going to build my own PC and I'm not going to customize one on PC Specialist because it's expensive but instead I am going to order one off Novatech because it has had some good reviews and people on this website say they are good. My question is, is the Destroyer good for what I want to play? The first gaming I am going to buy is Batman Arkham City and then I am going to get Dungeon Defenders (Great game by the way) and I hope to purchase Saints Row The Third in the near future. While playing these sorts of games I will be recording with FRAPS to edit and upload videos to youtube. Is this the computer for doing all that (not at the same time of course :P) ?

It is not a bad rig, I think for that sort of dosh I would like a better quality case but it will play all your games at very high settings I would think.

Not to keen on striped array or normally called Raid 0,a bit of reading here:Raid.

Wait. What is wrong with the RAID. I don't really understand RAID very well so someone will need to explain in layman's terms for me :(

Note with Novatech that you have to add the OS.

Well noted,I would not be paying that much for those components if there was not a OS included.

It is not quite in layman's terms,but should give you some idea.Raid.

OK. You are saying it's a lot to spend (I knew it didn't come with the OS just to clarify) and the parts don't seem to be worth that much. Can anyone suggest a reliable website to buy a gaming computer from ?

The problem with a striped raid is that whilst it gives a performance increase it has no redundancy. If one drive fails you have lost all your data.

Raid5 which requires at least 3 drives gives the speed of a striped raid and the redundancy. Lose one drive and the data can be rebuilt on a new drive from the other two.

Destroyer got the best graphics card the other tw no so good to put it kindly. I'll let others suggest as I build my own and to be honest I would not have any of them. I think you can do better for the price.

Try something here perhaps,PC. or the two that Woolwell suggested.
