800 Dollar Gaming PC (details in description)

Hello,
This would be my first time building a gaming pc although I have built a solid workbench before so I have some experience. Regardless, I would like a console-esque gaming pc, I don't mean low end, just something that I can plug into my tv. Lastly it would be preferable if I could get all the items on amazon for shipping and convenience.

TL;DR: Best gaming pc for 800 dollars today, all on amazon, and preferably in a smaller form factor (expandability is not a huge issue).

    This is great but I cannot buy the ram on amazon, and the power supply is like 50 bucks more. Can you find one that I can buy all through amazon (i'm okay going 20-30 dollars over 800 but not much more).
  5. Hahaha, I`m not a sales agent buddy. :)
    Just look for similar products that you can buy in Amazon.

    Don't get the athlon x4. It is NOT good for gaming.
  7. Best answer
    I think I will consider the X4 860k in terms of pure gaming performance.
    But compared with i5, then it will be no match.
