Gaming PC at $700-$800

Hello there,
I'm a first time builder and I'm looking at trying to build my first serious gaming rig. I could really use some advice as I'm not really quite sure what I should be getting at my price level.

Approximate Purchase Date: about a month

Budget Range: 700-800

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming heavy, and surfing the internet

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg is my favorite site but I will use other sites if the prices are better.

Country: USA

Parts Preferences: No Prefrence

Overclocking: Maybe?

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe?

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: I play alot of mmo's so if there is a way to increase performance at this price level I would be all for it.
And I'm looking to play these games (Tera, and Guildwars 2)

Thank you!
