It does good on a lot of things. I am happy with how well it handles DBFZ.

Smile I have a very similar machine. Mine is my daily.
I wish I could find a "Find" like that.
Good score!

32 GB is a complete waste on this machine, nothing will ever use it since the fx-8350 and 650 Ti limit what games he can play. Games that can run on a 650 Ti probably don't even need 4 GB. He can just leave one 8 GB stick and sell the rest or leave 16 GB if he plans to upgrade the GPU in the future.

Yea it is a bit of a waste but DDR3 doesn't sell around here. plus the clock speeds are a bit low too. I figure I will do other things with it too as it is. 
List of duties:
1) arcade machine with retroarch backbone and Launchbox Frontend. 
2) video encoder for YouTube videos when I want to play on my main computer.
3) Test a 2 pc streaming setup with NDI

I only plan on upgrading my Main Rig GPU to a 1080TI when I can afford it. Then the Arcade machine will get the hand me down. (780 if I remember correctly)
