Hi everyone, I want to build a good gaming computer and my budget is around $800. I would really appreciate it if you can pick the parts for me off new egg because I don't know whats good out there.

This will be my first time building a computer... I'm kind of nervous because I don't want to ruin anything.

Thanks!

 

Edit: I don't need monitor and OS.

Thank you so much noir, but I forgot to mention I don't need OS. Anything else anyone would like to add?

Better off for gaming getting an i5 or Phenom II+a 5850 if you can afford it. Amd x6 is terrible at gaming.

You could upgrade the graphics card from a hd5750 to hd 5770. 

SAPPHIRE Vapor-X 100283VXL Radeon HD 5770 1GB

 

Or spend a little extra money for HD5850  about $60 more

Or u could wait for open box items and buy two hd5770 at $125 each which is what i did.

ok ... heres wat you can get for 800$

Asus Black 24X Burner

Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Western Digital Caviar Black 640GB

XFX HD 5770 Radeon

Antec Basiq BP430 430Watts

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB

GIGABYTE GA P55 USB3 Motherboard

Intel Core i5-750\

Price = 804.84$

you could probably change harddrive to make it cheaper. If you want it to be more reliable change power supply but thats not a big risk a this one is at a good price.
