Graphics25.7% is a below average 3D score (GTX 1070 = 100%). This GPU can handle older games but it will struggle to render recent games at resolutions greater than 1080p. (Note: general computing tasks don't require 3D graphics)
Boot Drive67.6% is a good SSD score. This drive enables fast boots, responsive applications and ensures minimum system IO wait times.
Memory28GB is enough RAM to run any version of Windows and it's far more than any current game requires. 28GB will also allow for large file and system caches, virtual machine hosting, software development, video editing and batch multimedia processing.
