Advice for building a good gaming pc

Hello i am new to pc gaming and was wondering would it be smarter to buy some part for my current desktop or to save up for an actual gaming pc. I currently have a HP pavilion p6-2100 w/
AMD dual-core 2.8 GHz A4-3420 processor
AMD Radeon HD 6410D (2GB memory with 512 mb dedicated memory)
4GB DDR3
300W Power supply

I would like to have a pc that can run games like Skyrim, Battlefield, Farcry and so on with high graphics and maybe some mods.
What advice would you give me?

  1. I think you have to start from scratch

    500- 600 gets you a computer that can game better than a console

    Would you suggest just getting everything? Or do you mean like a new processor, graphics card, ddr?
