Budget Range: PC: 700-800

for about that price range i'd consider buying from a company such as and compare the final cost with a build others will help you figure out using tiger/newegg. sometimes you can get better specs for the same price around that price range from buying from a building company, since they get wholesale prices. just a thought. i'd help you but i gotta take a huge dump.
