  2. Best answer
    The above build is good value but it's missing a case, CX series PSU's are junk and you'd be better off with two 4gb ram sticks than four 2gb sticks.

    For $800 I would get this, you won't get much better value as the parts are actually worth $900 but you need to act fast to get all the sales.

    It depends what games you play as to what build will best suit your needs. If you play GPU heavy games like battlefield than an AMD build might suit you better as you will be able to afford a better GPU but if you play CPU intensive games like DayZ than an intel build will suit you better.
