Old hardware, don't waste your money on it.

It will, with every setting turned to low.

2600k is a good 5 generations old now, it's on its way out. That being said it does still perform quite well, and in some cases, like Watch Dogs 2, the 2600k performs better than some newer i3/i5 CPUs thanks to the 2600k's 8 threads. For a CPU upgrade, youd need a new CPU, motherboard and RAM. You're also going to want to swap that GPU out either immediately or fairly soon IMO.

So at that point, youre just re-using the HDD, case, and PSU. Even then, he's been pretty vague about the case and PSU so they could be terrible quality, and the HDD is slow.

Nah the graphics card and the hardrive isn't the greatest. I'd buy it cheap but then upgrade graphics card.

The HDD is fine I guess but get SSD with it too.
