Do this: It's 30$ over, but it manages to fit in a decent processor, 8GB of RAM (Overkill, but good if processor gets upgraded in the future), a 1TB 7200rpm hard drive and a 7770 Ghz edition card which will be good enough for source games.

The APU will be able to run all source games easily, and when you have more money you could add a Dedicated GPU.

The GPU is in the CPU, and its a good one, it can still play the latest games, also couldn't you try and be at least a little more grateful. Saying you want a console is just a death sentence, trust me its a good build and easily upgradable so quit whining.
