My brother is looking into getting a pre built PC (transitioning from console). I've built mine through pc parts picker but he wants to avoid the building process.

He shared this link:

https://www.amazon.com/LEGION-Y520-TWR-3-0-8GB/dp/B0776CYVGC/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1528426868&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=lenovo+y520+desktop&dpPl=1&dpID=31Wc0XGubHL&ref=plSrch

And wants to know if this is a good starting pc for playing fps games like overwatch & fortnite.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.
 


That's a horrible listing that leaves out nearly every important specification.

You should know exact CPU and GPU model for sarters.

Here's a good gaming PC with specs listed (*he would likely want more hard drive space because it has the SSD but no HDD, buying a HDD is rather cheap and easily installable.)

What info is missing and would you have any recommendations? (his budget is around $800 - $1000)
 
if you have a local micro center look at there house brand. try getting a pc that uses a stock case size and power supply. a lot of dell and hp now use small cases and there not upgrade friendly. also look on newegg for pre built gaming pc.
