Additional Comments:First time building pc so im kinda bad at this, but would like to get 6-8 gbs of ram if possible not mandatory , but i would mostly want a build that can play games like Global Agenda, Starcraft 2, WoW, and League of Legends on max settings.In addition would like it to be ready for future releases such as Guild Wars 2 on same settings. Wont mind if i have to turn it down a notch or two.

If you are specifying an i5-K, Z68 motherboard, and 8 GB of RAM, you will not hit your $800 price point without seriously compromising on your video card.

From THG configurations articles:

This came in at about $900.

Because this is your first build, look at the following threads while you are waiting for your parts.

And although this primarily a troubleshooting thread, the first part contains a checklist that will catch most noob mistakes:
