Can anyone give me a good decent build for my $800-900 budget? This was my old one:
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2dFSE
but a lot of the parts are sold out. I want to buy this before cyber monday ends in two hours. Can someone give me a build preferably with windows 8.1 64 bit and maybe a monitor as well that the parts from newegg aren't sold out? Thanks.

Oh, thank you very much. Couple questions: For the build you listed, I wouldn't need a cpu cooler unless I plan to upgrade right? So just use the stock it comes with?

Also, how does this processor compare to the i5 4670k?

Thanks again.

You wont need an aftermarket cpu cooler because there's a stock cooler on the package, but if you are overclocking then you need an aftermarket cpu cooler.

that processor is 8 Cores, 4670k has a slight advantage in gaming "on paper" but in real world you won't even notice much the difference. As of now games are not utilizing multicores but in the future, since PS4 and Xboxone has 8 cores, all of the games might utilize multicores in gaming.

if you can avail the 4670k then go for it. but for the budget you have, you wont have Monitor and windows 8 copy. And believe me, I am using and 8350 and 8320 is only slight under clocked than 8350, and I am pretty happy with 8350 on gaming performance. so for the price/performace you wont be disappointed.
