  1. 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.
  2. 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.

    are you sure? i got mine for 730 with a fx6300, hd7870 and even a ssd and i think it should be able to have similar graphics.

    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.
