impossible pc build request?

i need a decent gaming pc build with $420. this has to cover everything including monitor,keyboard/mouse,shipping. only thing this does not need to cover is a OS. i am not sure if this is even possible as i have no clue about any of this; i guess this is why i came to the experts. if you could build me a PC that could play games such as minecraft, garrys mod, CS:GO, H1Z1, borderlands, left 4 dead and other games like that i would be eternally grateful. any advice and/or builds are greatly appreciated!

-John

edit: i do have a 500 gig harddrive i could use from a laptop of mine if needed.

The CPU is about the same performance as the AMD A10, only I was able to squeeze in a dedicated graphics card too (surprisingly) and its not the worst GPU either :) http://pcpartpicker.com/p/pwsZpg idk how to link it so I get a picture of the parts like Mistuh did lol.

Unfortunately, the A10 was just made obsolete by the i3-6100, which offers better integrated graphics performance with HD 530, better compute performance in gaming workloads, a better upgrade path, and superior efficiency.

and this build will play csgo, left for dead, h1z1, gmod, assassins creed? thanks for your build ! i also noticed the lack of a video card, how much will that impact the build?

Also if there was one upgrade I could afford to the build ; what would you say it should be ?

if i spend 650 for everything do you think you could make it capable of playing AC and H1Z1 at medium settings and good fps?

I would if I could, but I dont actually know how to build them either! I got a brother that builds them so I never worried about that stuff haha. but he lives in MA. i'm sure you'll be able to find someone though, and if not there are plenty of tutorials on youtube.

i just want to be able to play them. on a pre built $250 laptop i got from walmart it can run garys mod on default, as well as left for dead smoothly. so i was assuming with a $400-500 build i could easily play the games i wanted. but i know absolutely nothing about pc building/specs. thanks though :)

so it would cost about $620 with the peripherals? im getting my next check next week; i would be able to pay $620 for everything as long as it can run AC and H1Z1 at decent settings.
