Default A Good Budget Build?

Since this forums has been the oldest and the most frequently visited forums by me, I couldn't think of another place to take this matter to.
I am on an extremely tight budget, I've got about $170 so I contact a shop and I ask them for a custom build, and they come out with the following for $220, and by selling my old crappy Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4Ghz 4GB DDR2 Ram, and a Quadro 600 (1GB) I got $50 out of that. so it comes back down into my budget :
(keep in mind that in my country, gaming pcs are already very expensive)
  • Core i5 3470 (3rd Gen) 3.2 Ghz
  • 8 GBs DDR3 Ram
  • GTX 650 2gb GDDR5
  • 500GB Hard Drive
  • 425W Supply
  • Standard Casing.
So is it worth it?
Edit- My Conclusion : After alot of consideration I've talked to my brother and we've decided its just better to keep my current pc for normal low-resource requiring applications and buy a ps4 for gaming.

In my opinion, no. I don't spend that much cash just for gaming. You can buy something better with that money and eventually something could go wrong with your computer(broken stuff, etc.) and that would take more money to fix.

If you are really in a thight budget,I suggest you to not buy a pc,buy something more useful instead.
Think about maintenance cost,electricity bill and other stuff before you buy it.

I never bought a pc gaming myself.

Well, I think I've misled you guys a little bit, the money I have stated above, is something I can easily spend, its just not more than that.

He probably meant an expensive PC. Cheap computers with at least 2 gb ram can do the same things expensive PCs can (except for running games with ultra graphics, etc)
And it's just not worth buying an expensive PC if you're on a low budget.

You should get 16 gigs of ram. Games start to be demanding these days.
Sure it will run most of them just fine, but it's good measure for several years down the line.
