I was thinking of buying this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883227314
then buying http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130568 which would bring me only 50 dollars over my budget. Was thinking would probably have to replace the power supply to but any comments if that would make for a decent gaming computer?

That power supply in the computer would barely be able to take that graphics card, but it is possible. It's a decent build, but I would consider upgrading the power supply and then upgrading to a Radeon 68xx graphics card. The Radeon 68xx line is a bit more powerful than a GTX 460.

Power Supply: CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 V2 600W - This is a decent power supply.

Graphics Card: XFX HD-685X-ZNFR Radeon HD 6850 1GB or SAPPHIRE 100314-3L Radeon HD 6870 1GB - These are more powerful than a GTX 460, with the 6870 being more powerful.

It is possible to put a computer together that has better graphics card for $600 or less.

You could indeed get a build for around $600, but with lower end parts, or for a different use case outside of gaming. Frankly, I would rather spend a little more and get a better quality PC than shave a few dollars off the price. By the time you complete the upgrades to get a more powerful gaming PC, you may be above the $650 by a large margin. Instead, you would probably be better off building your own PC and possibly saving some cash.

Case: Antec TWO HUNDRED S Black ATX Mid - Decent and inexpensive. This will handle most gaming builds until you get up to the large graphics cards. $44 (Before $15 mail-in rebate)

Motherboard: ASUS M5A97 EVO AM3+ AMD 970 - This is essentially the same board from iBuyPower. This is good for a basic gaming PC, however, if you want to use SLI or Crossfire, you should consider an AMD 990FX based motherboard along with a full ATX tower. $119

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz - This is a more powerful CPU over the one from the original build. Also, unlike that original build, this is a Black Edition CPU, meaning it can be very easily overclocked. If you render or do data intensive applications, a six core CPU, like the AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2GHz, would be great, otherwise, stick with the quad. AMD is going to be releasing new FX Bulldozer-based CPU's within the next month which are significantly more powerful at a similar price point. Meaning, you can get a more powerful CPU at that time for the same cash, or a similarly performing CPU for less when it is released. $119

Graphics Card: You can use either card from my previous post. Radeon 6850 $149 (Before $30 mail-in rebate)

Power Supply: CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 V2 600W - This should be able to provide plenty of power. $69 (Before $20 mail-in rebate)

RAM: Mushkin Enhanced Silverline 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 - 4GB should be enough, unless you are gaming or using data intensive applications. In which case, you should get another one of these kits. $27

HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black WD7502AAEX 750GB - This should be plenty of space. $54

ODD: ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner - A simple drive. $19

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OEM - You need this. If you do certain higher-end functions, like NAS-based backups or needing EFS, you may want to consider the Professional edition. $99

Grand Total: $706 (Before shipping, taxes, and rebates)

If this is a standard non-gaming PC, you may want to consider an AMD APU-based system which has the power of a Phenom II CPU clocked at 2.8GHz. paired with a Radeon 6550 graphics card on a single processor. This eliminates the need for a discrete add-in GPU unless you need power above a 6550.

To shave even more money off, this GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3 AM3+ AMD 970 is $19 cheaper :)

I don't think that Gigabyte motherboard has uEFI. Frankly, I would rather spend $19 more and use uEFI on the Asus board.

It is either money or extra features.
