Hey guys, first post. I want to build a gaming computer for no more than $800. This would be my fist time building a computer.

I'm thinking:
Intel core i5 760 (for around $15 less i could get the 750) $100
a Radeon 5670: $100

I selected that graphics card because it had directx11 but I don't know If I made a good choice.
I would like to know if these two go well together, and if my graphics card choice is good. I need help picking out other components. Thanks!

5670 is too slow to be a gamer for most people - depends on your monitor.
that i5 is fine, you should still have plenty of budget for a semi decent build to go around it.

I see, maybe a 5750 or 5770 (depends if the 5770 is actually worth $20 more)

For 20$ more? Is that 1 GB version? Yes it worth 20$ more, it has roughly double the 5670's performance.

with discounts and rebates: $705-ish but you'll be using a diff gpu saving about $100. good luck!
