I'm trying to find a good first gaming pc and this looks like a pretty decent one.

All I know is that I will have to upgrade the graphics card but that's where my knowledge ends. Can anyone help me out?

No.
The capability of a gamer is first determined by the graphics card.
The pc has minimal graphics and will have a psu suitable only for a low power card.

My budget is about 500-550ish. Anything much beyond that is out of the question. All I really want is a good graphics card and good processor. I don't need an I7 or anything just something that will play a game like Planet side 2 well. I also don't really know much about computers which is why I came here. For example I pretty much have no clue what a motherboard does. So can you help?
