Default Is this a good buy?

Well, my main purpose is to game. I would like to play games like League of Legends, Tf2, and Minecraft all at max graphics settings very smoothly while recording using a program like Fraps. Also, if possible I would like to be able to play games like Modern Warfare 2 on about mid settings.
Will this computer do that for me? Keep in mind my budget is strictly 600 dollars, so without building a computer (an option I would prefer, but am in no means confident enough that I could actually make it work, as I've never done anything even remotely like it before), this is probably about the best I can do.

If you don't think this will get the job done, please feel free to suggest other computers under 600 dollars that could (if there is even such a thing)

it doesnt seem terrible, but the power supply probably isnt the best.

the gpu will probably get you about 55 fps at 1680 x 1050 with settings at maximum and 4xAA and 16xAF on MW2
