I am looking into building my own gaming pc. I'm not the biggest pc expert in the world but I've done a little looking around and i think i could figure out the building part. I sure am no expert on picking parts though. If someone could help me with picking out the parts for around $750-$900 I would greatly appreciate it.

I mainly play League of Legends but I've been getting into a few graphic intensive games lately and it seems my old asus just cant hold up to some newer titles. I'll probably be doing a little streaming also with my new computer. Thanks for all the help :D

His build is great, but he maxed out your budget. You can save $150 by getting the GTX 760 for only $250. That way you can get a $90 Windows 7 Home Premium (because he forgot to put that in there and I am unsure if you need an OS or not).

I just noticed that the AMD 7950 is on sale for the same price as a 760. It has 3GB VRAM and 356 bit. I am deciding between myself and I yet have to come to a conclusion on which I would love the best. AMD CPUs are just slightly (theoretically) less powerful than Intel's CPUs. However, the price at which AMDs CPUs cannot be beat by Intel. Top of the line AMD is the FX-8350 8-Core CPU and it is only about $200. Intel's i5-3750k is $220 (which is not top of the line for Intel). If you have a budget, stick with AMD. If you have all the money in the world, go with Intel.
