    I guess it depends on how much your paying in some ways.  The computer itself is probably a mid to lower level gaming computer IMO.  I would be somewhat concerned about the cooling in the pc as this tends to be an issue for some gamers.  I would also look at the ability to upgrade if you are making a serious investment.  Some people may have an issue with the AMD CPU.  This will certainly play any game out now and probably most for the next year or two.

    That PC will be fine for online gaming.

    The hardware is decent and should run pretty much every game out there. Maybe not at max settings but med/high certainly. I cant speak to the value of it as you did not list a price.

    It's good. If one were to build a gaming desktop on budged today, those parts wouldn't be bad picks.

    It's not a high end machine and you won't be able to run every game with all settings maxed, but it should run every modern game and likely all that will get released during next couple of years.

    Its more then fine for most online games. In the future you could upgrade the videocard for ultra high settings but its a pretty ok gaming PC.

    Its fine. Although I would personally use  an AMD card. In your case, i would replace the 760 with R9 280X. It's basically a better GPU and allows you to utilize Mantle for whichever game supports it. I'm fairly certain that this CPU will need to offload processing to the GPU (E.g. Mantle/Dx12)

    On raw compute power AMD GPUs are better than nVidia. So an AMD GPU would make for more of a balanced build. Yours is good nonetheless though. Congratz. It will play online games for years to come :)

    Also there is no "non-black" edition of the CPU you specified :P

    It's a viable gaming rig, but whether it's a good deal depends on the price tag and the condition.  If it's in good working order and you can get it under $500, then sure.  If you'd have to pay $1000 for it, then you can probably do better new on that sort of budget.
