Windows 7: Best computer for a value of 600 to 650

So if I successfully set up this 550 computer with 64GB Crucial SSD, 32GB of RAM, i7 Processor, and the stock GFX card, will it be able to run games smoothly?

As near as I can see, it has no "stock GFX card".

It seems to be sold without a graphics card.

The graphics are built into the 2600K processor--eg Intel HD 3000.

You can google around for what games that will run. It's equivalent to a mid level gaming card.

You can later upgrade to a standalone graphics card as you see fit.

You don't need more than 4 GB of RAM to yank around a game.

Just had a look at Blackvipers Service Pack 1 Windows 7 Services Guide, looks like he has Barebone in that Guide, might need to check that out .

You are best advised to try to restrain yourself regarding his recommendations about services.

Ok, so my Mum asked if I wanted to buy it now; at first she kept saying it's a scam, I got through that part: but as it does not include a monitor, keyboard or mouse, that discouraged her, I haven't even told her I need a 70 SSD yet :S

After some more research, I found out I have a 3.5" bay, but the SSD is 2.5", firstly where can I find the Drive Bay, secondly how will I use the 2.5" adapter to 3.5", so confused here.

the 3.5" adapter is to make the SSD the same size as your drive bay so it will fit. Once you put the SSD in the adapter it will be 3.5" and will fit in a 3.5" hard drive bay.

Any tutorials on how to fit the adapter in?

What tools will I need to open the case?
