So yeah. I'm looking into replacing my old desktop and from what I'm hearing, you can get a decent custom that can run most modern games for around $800 currently.

I'd definitely prefer to keep Nvidia over AMD. Would be nice to include monitor + mouse aswell.

I know this is over budget, and no monitor. But, if you want a pre built, your not going to get anything as nice as this for the price.

As mentioned, I'd like to avoid AMD please. Personal preference. Thats ok if it's slightly over $800.

Tbh it isn't logical to prefer NVidia over AMD when asking for a build, it basically shows you're only in NVidia for its name and mainstream reviews. but here you go. This build will run anything on ultra, I could have chosen one level lower of Graphics Card but it left you with $50 till you reached $800, so I decided to go slightly over the budget that would be worth the price.

The GTX 770 will destroy that r9 270.

It doesn't show that at all, however your response is extremely ignorant. I have multiple years of experience using both Nvidia and AMD products, and I find that I prefer using Nvidia based from past experience. It's called consumer preference. I never read reviews or get involved in the ongoing debate AMD vs Nvidia.

None the less, I appreciate the build list.

My bad, I thought you were just a regular person who didn't know about GPUs and just wanted Nvidia for its name. Sorry lol :S
EDIT: Sorry if that sounds sarcastic, but i'm not being sarcastic :p
