Hey guys, thanks for helping me out in my last question. Now I have another doubt. All in all, having an 800 dollar budget, would this be a good build. Now, i have no idea about the types of intl core i5 or nothing, just know the basics, if you could help me find a specific name of the product, i'd appreciate it a lot, because I know there are different types of the same name.

I'd use this gaming pc to play 1080p quality 2013 games.

intel core i5 quad core
8gb of RAM
1tb
Nvidia geforce gtx 660

That would be it, thanks guys!!!

The Radeon 7870 XT is a way better GPU than a standard GTX 660 is for the same price.

Probably the 660TI but that would put you way over budget. The Radeon 7870 XT is a good 1/2 way GPU.

Here you go. 7$ under budget. I the 7870 comes with 4 free games so this is a good deal. You overclock the 3570k. The other ones with out the k, cannot overclock. The cou cooler will allow you to overclock a bit and keep temps down. Good luck with your build! :)
