Need an $800 build

  1. The title says it all. I need the best build for $800 with shipping included. It's purely for gaming.

    I'd definitely opt to cheap out more on the motherboard, dvd drive, case, and possibly CPU to get a better power supply and graphics card. IMO you should be aiming to use a 7850 or 7870.

    Have you looked at Techspot's PC Buying Guide?

    Will this build work? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/wozN

    I forgot about needing to buy the OS as well, so I chose a cheaper motherboard. It says that the case doesn't have any front USB ports, which would be a little annoying not to have. Do you guys see any other potential problems?

    Looks like it has 2 front USB ports to me. Top of the case right up at the same level as the power button.

    Would you suggest a different video card in the same price range?

    On any occasions, try to avoid Micro ATX motherboards. Well you need to check the case specifications from the manufacturer website, so you can confirm that it have 3.0 USB on the front panel. Also, get the 7850 or Asus 660.
