Best gaming parts for under $800 USD

I have a case, mouse, monitor, os, keyboard, hdd and RAM. I'm looking to upgrade and do not want an SSD or gaming mouse and keyboard.

I want parts that'll be able to play most if not all games at 60fps at 1080.

  2. Would the i5 also be good for such tasks as streaming (for games such as DoTA and League I know the r9 290 is one of the top of the range cards.) and then just gaming for Watch Dogs and Metro Last Light
  3. yea, it will handle that
  4. I like this build, I just think I might push it and buy a better mobo and put the 10 dollars in and get the K so I can over clock a little bit more power.
  5. Probably looking at an extra $80 between CPU, low-mid mobo and a supporting cooler
