gaming pc build around 800

im thinking about getting into pc gaming and i want to build my own. so i need a full list of parts and whatever else advice you can give me as i know nothing about computers. and as for some of the small things, i could care less about how big the case is and it has to look good.(i understand that it really shouldnt matter) i do plan on overclocking and also plan on future upgrades so i need a little bit of extra room. and also i plan on using my tv as a display and it would help if i could use an hdmi. thanks in advance.

  1. I guess 800 means 800 dollars.

    For 800 dollars the best you can get is:

    The Graphics card I included has HDMI output so, you can easily connect your TV.

    However if you plan to overclock in the future then you will need an aftermarket CPU cooler like:

    or

    And there is plenty of room for future upgrades as well like options for adding more RAM, multiple GPU support like crossfire or SLI and option for adding a better CPU from AMD FX series.
