Hi, I am interested in building my very own gaming PC. I am new at building PCs but I have been researching PCs for about 2 months so I know what the main idea is. I was wondering if you guys could build me a gaming PC for about 800$ including a 1080p monitor and Windows 7. The price can be a little bit higher if you think I could get the same parts but cheaper during Black Friday or Cybermonday. I am hoping the PC can play graphically intensive games at 1080p on medium-high settings. Thanks for you help in advance. :D

Thats a nice build but that's a little over my price for now. Do you think I could get a similar build WITH a monitor for 800$ during black friday or cyber monday?

Oh yeah. When black friday/cyber-monday hits you should definitely be able to add a monitor in there for free.

One more question, you recommended me the gtx 760. Do you think I should go for the Radeon 7950 instead if I can get it at the same price or cheaper?

760 performs slightly better than the 7950. I'd stick with he 760 but if you can find the 7950 for cheaper then go for it.
