Get an intel, even if it is a low end ivy bridge, and look into getting a 660ti, they are right around the corner. You should play with a decent FPS of 40-50 with that configuration.
Right, so you're telling a guy who was looking at $300 for a cheap-o bargin bin build to spend.. what around $600-1000 which he can't afford, on a CPU which is $100 more than an AMD Phenom II X4 for a 1 fps improvement (based on Crysis 2) and a GPU which costs as much on it's own for it as what he was originally looking at to spend?
Well back to the drawing board. I guess HP didn't like the fact that they sold me an entire new comp for $120.00 and canceled my order lol....2 days later after charging my card...tisk tisk HP
$500 total build;
ODD: Random used one / N/A (grab a flash drive)
OS: win 8 beta until you can afford 7.
