I bought an HP pavillion and graphics card for 500 bucks and play SWTOR and Diablo 3 on full settings with no problem.

I wouldn't use this unless I got to try it out first. I'm so skeptical that it would be able to handle my usual shenanigans.

Because it's too slow? In that case, you try and price out a complete system (no peripherals) that performs better. Personally, I like the alternative budget build that they mention better. I'm not sure how the GTX 460 and the HD7770 relate, but I do know that at that price, I'd take every tiny bit of performance I could get, almost regardless of power consumption. Also, I'd probably skimp on the case and PSU, some kind of combo deal is probably cheaper, although finding one that isn't some extremely sketchy Chinese brand is not easy.

You can find good quality low cost psus fairly easily. As in around $20 after rebate.
