I already have all the peripherals and a 500GB HDD. All I need is the best gaming build for $800. Try and squeeze an SSD for the boot drive ,editing videos and a few games. Also I'm willing to wait a couple months for anything new coming out. I have to sell a few things I own first.

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/XLXe this is if you want to upgrade to a better cpu such as the 3770k

ehh. scrap the 7870 and just get a 7850. Pick up a 256gb 840 pro (so much faster than the 840). and get a corsair cx600m for about 10$ cheaper. you could even get a corsair 500w for 30$

The pro has 400 mb/s faster write speeds and i would get the card from newegg because of the 4 free games.

Total Cost for this build is $537(If overclocking).

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/XPmj

$55 board that has what you need. For memory, $45 DDR3 2x4GB (1600) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820313355 . For the case, NZXT. The GPU card with the best value at this builds price range is a GTX 660. If anyone has room for improvement, please add a suggestion.
