Make this a good and awesome computer on cheap budget?

I'm 15 and starting a part time job soon, I love to play fps games, and I'm trying to look for a cheap and awesome gaming computer. I'm tired of playing on my very weak laptop that can barely hold 60 fps in my favorite game Combat Arms on the lowest settings.

I'm tired of playing on my very weak laptop that can barely hold 60 fps in my favorite game Combat Arms on the lowest settings. I know a lot about computer parts, but I'm still need a lot of help making my own computer. Here is a site I'm trying to customize my own computer in. Is there any way I can make it cheaper, but still have good performance? or at least a different site that has the same things for cheaper price?

Is it possible to change a few things so that I can play the latest games on full settings without lagging? I'm tired of lagging and next thing I know I die and shooting in slow motion all the time. I'm serious when I'm playing my fps games. This is my first real gaming computer, because I'm using a cheap laptop that can barely hold together on the lowest settings I can set. I'm so tired of lagging 24/7.
Update: Thanks everyone for the info. I'll upgrade a few things you recommend, but the site doesn't have some of those options so maybe after I get the computer I'll upgrade.

Let me know if this computer is any good.

I'm going to get the $1215 computer after I get a decent computer. For now I'm looking for a more possible goal that's under $600.
