Could someone help me with a $600 - $700 gaming build?

Alright so basically I have been wanting to get a gaming pc more than anything right now because the consoles this year are not really appealing and my computer is starting to hit the dirt. Well anyways I have been looking at gaming pcs lately and I have found a build and I was wondering what this all would play? The specs on it are....

AMD FX-4100 3.60GHz Processor

8GB 1333MHz DDR3 Memory

1TB 7,200RPM SATA II Hard disk drive

AMD Radeon HD 6450 GPU with 1GB video memory

Now im not looking for a gaming computer that will play everything Ultra settings 60+ fps. I'm just looking for a computer that will play games like Call of Duty Black Ops 2, Battlefield 3, Gotham City Imposters, League of legends, runescape, and ARMA 2. Now I don't care if I have to play these games on Lowest settings with 20-30 fps, Just as long as they are playable. So, what will these specs play? and if this computer build will not play many of these things in lowest settings at a 20 - 30fps rate, what are some of your suggestions? Remember that im on a $600 - $700 MAX budget.

I also found another setup in my price range...

3rd Gen. Intel Core Dual Core i3-3220 3.1GHz processor

8GB of DDR3 memory

1TB Hard Disk drive

1GB ATI Radeon HD 7750

Could this setup run battlefield 3 on lowest settings at a playable rate of 20- 30 fps?

Found one more that i was wondering about......

3rd Gen Intel Core i5 i5-3570K 3.4GHz processor

8GB of DDR3 memory

1TB Hard Disk Drive

NVIDIA GeForce GT 630

    With Windows added, it'll be more. Same for if you need peripherals, but you didn't state this.

    For an even better CPU (at the cost of a lowered, but still midrange GPU):

    Both builds are nice. I'd go with the first one. At least until I know more from you.
