It is better than a PS4,but you should change a few things
Get an AM3+ motherboard and the fx6300/4130 whichever fits your budget. Reason is those offer more processing power compared to APU's which offer more graphics on the CPU (ps4 runs on one) which is moot as you're getting Nvidia graphics.

If you're on a 1080p screen you will not be able to game at Ultra settings for sure with such configuration and your card will face problems for games.

Here's a look at how your card performs in some games.

If you're on 1080p, you should go for the PS4 which will regularly help you achieve 60 fps in all games quite easily.
Plus you won't have to worry about upgrading every other month for a new game.

If you're on anything less than 1080p you can easily use the above setting to get extremely good results, and can buy this build.

It will be worse than a PS4, you want system which is similar to PS4's Architecture and will surpass its raw power, I have put together two builds, select which one is within your budget.

Option 1 - $500 APU Gaming System


AMD A10-6800K
MSI FM2-A75MA-E35
Corsair Vengence LP 8GB 1866Mhz RAM
WD Blue 1TB 7200RPM HDD
Corsair 200R Case
Corsair CS 500W PSU
Windows 8.1

Total: $550 (Approx.)

The first build is based on the latest AMD Richland APU. The A10 6800K is a dual module/quad core unit with the previous generation VLIW4 graphics architecture. This combination can run most games at up to 1080P resolutions, but with much lower quality settings. Then again, when can a user adjust quality settings on a console? The FM2+ board will allow a user to upgrade to a Kaveri APU when those are released, or they will have the flexibility of purchasing a standalone graphics card that will likely outperform the latest generation of consoles for around the $150 mark.

The system comes with 8 GB of DDR3 memory at 1866 speeds, so it will not hinder the APU’s performance by any stretch of the imagination. It features a full 1 TB drive because most users will quickly fill up a 500 GB unit. The case is good sized and has ample cooling ability and room for upgrades. The 500 watt power supply will be able to handle any single standalone GPU offered, except perhaps units like the GTX 690 or HD 7990. It comes with Windows 8.1, which may or may not be a popular choice with users. Still, it has a lot of functionality built in, but any productivity software will have to be either bought or downloaded later.

The price ($549) is above the $499 mark of the Xbox One, and well above the PS4. Still, the overall functionality of the PC in terms of productivity, video encoding, communications, social interactions, and flexibility are unparalleled when it comes to consoles. It does fall down in terms of gaming against both consoles. This is an older graphics architecture comprising fewer stream units and a much slower main memory connection. It is a 128 bit memory bus running at DDR3 2133 speeds (around 34 GB/sec theoretical). It will not be able to outperform the console APUs in terms of graphics quality and performance, but the flexibility for the user in terms of other applications is a big draw. Gaming will be “good enough”, but it will not match this latest generation of consoles.

If there is one small (or large) drawback for this APU build, it is the lack of an optical drive. Adding a Blu-Ray drive will be around $50. This may or may not include bundled BD playback software (there there are free/open source applications around). For the average user who may not be comfortable in searching and installing these options, this could be a big drawback. While streaming services like Hulu and Netflex do a very good job, we still do not have the bandwidth requirements needed to stream high quality, high definition video with HD sound (like DTS-Master or Dolby TrueHD).

Option 2 - A Little More Money for a lot More Power

AMD FX-6300 CPU
MSI 970A-G43 AM3+ Motherboard
Corsair Vengence LP 8GB 1866Mhz RAM
Gigabyte Radeon R9 270X 2GB
WD Blue 1TB 7200RPM HDD
Corsair 200R
Corsair CX 600W PSU
Windows 8.1

Total: 780$ (Approx.)

Chose whichever you can.

Thats a 720p resolution. If you intend to stay at that resolution, you can safely avoid the PS4 and get your build.
Your card will run everything fine.
But the moment you upgrade your monitor, be prepared for some rude shocks.

As much as i love PC's im going to have to go with a ps4 because of the price to performance ratio. Thank you all for your help, as i appreciate your responses. but i do not have 750 or 600$ to use on a pc that will beat the ps4. Unless there is a 550$ gaming pc that wins yeah.. ps4 all the way. if there is such a rig please do tell. :)

You can have one kick ass rig for around 580 dollars, if you decide not to buy an OS , and get one by off the internet ( Not advising you to do it, just mentioning :p  )

http://pcpartpicker.com/user/BAssim/saved/3e1a

This system without the OS will be 10x better than PS4.

You can buy a 500gb HDD and even save the 30 dollars there to get it within 550 dollars. That's the best I could manage, to make sure that you are awesomely equipped.

So think about it, a little Windows OS shouldn't stop you from enjoying games, should it ?

I would honestly go with the PS4 if your budget is that low. In a few months you'll be dying for a upgrade while if you get a PS4 you just buy games and maybe a new TV or w/e else.

I agree with Bassim, you can get windows 8 trial for 30 days, even 180 in some cases so you must have enough money by then.

However PS4s are going for 600-700$ now.

Well you said 550 dollars, I did give you something for 550. Now if you're thinking 400 dollars, it's impossible.
Man if you're worrying this much about spending on a PC build, go safely for PS4.
You won't regret it.
My build without windows is perhaps the closet you'll get to in outperforming a PS4 by ten times for 550-580 dollars.

The R9 270 supports a VGA monitor via an adapter.
