yes it does, you can either plug in PC speakers to the color coded plug.

or you can use the "line out plug" by running a 3.5 male to 3.5 male stereo extension line from the PC to your home stereo's Auxillary plug and listen thru your stereo speakers.

Not so good for gaming, it maybe OK for 13 years old but not good for next yer, because you can't upgrade this computer. Don't waist your $$$, buy something up-gradable at least you can add a graphic card to it in the future.

This PC will play any games that have system requirements equal to or less than the specifications of this PC. I recommend contacting the software manufacturer of any games you intend to use in order to determine the system requirements for their software.
