$850 Gaming PC Build

I'm thinking of building a gaming PC and my budget is around $850. I would like it to be able to run any game on medium to high settings. I have no part preferences. Already have the OS, monitor, keyboard and mouse. I also live in Canada. Thanks in advance.

    This is good, but I would recommend spending less on a case and hard drive and going for a SSD and a smaller hard drive, like a Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB and a Samsung 840 128GB.


    EDIT: I messed up this quote bad.
  3. Thanks for the builds!
  4. would the amd 8320 make a big difference? Also, would it be a good idea to spend less on the case and hard drive, and instead get a better GPU?
  5. You could spend more on the GPU, it would depend on what games you are playing.
  6. I will mostly be playing shooters like BF4, some Farcry, maybe some borderlands.
  7. The GPU currently would play games great. You wouldnt have any problems with it.
