    Question Would a radeon r9-255 be good for gaming?

    I am about to purchase a pc with an r9-255 2gb Ddr3, it comes with a core i5 2nd gen 3.1Ghz, the seller claims that it runs games like far cry 5 and tekken 7 at 60 fps but im unsure, could anyone help me out and tell me if it'll be worth to spend money on?
