Those parts are $600.

If you don't need to buy the OS, yes, you can build a good 1080p gaming PC for $500. Barely.

If you plan to spend less than $800 on a gaming machine, a console will give you the best bang for the buck. No build under $800 will even come close to the upcoming consoles' graphics capabilities.

Hey if you think so, more power to you. I guess it has to do with what you become accustomed to and whether it's acceptable or not.
