    Depends on a few things:

    A) Which games What settings C) Do you already have any parts or peripherals. If you're looking for a $600 + Monitor @ 1080 on Ultra, no. Well, unless you're playing solitaire.

    1. Just games like Starcraft 2 and stuff. Though I do want to play future games coming up./
    2. I have keyboard/mouse and monitor already

    hardly can last you a year or two if you want to play those future games considering the game companies are terrible with optimization

    Q9550, GTX285, top tier parts from 2008 (cpu) and 2009 (gpu) only runs Skyrim (2011) on 35-40fps with peaks to usually 45fps max on medium settings and 1080p.

    Just to give an idea that within 2-3 years, your low to medium-ish system is going to be total shit. :/
