  1. Regardless of the budget, it's not really worth going with AMD for a pure gaming machine. An i5 would be best at this budget. Assuming you're not overclocking, this would be very good:

    For just under $850 you could go for this:

    i5-3550
    8GB G.Skill Ares 1600Mhz
    ASRock H77 Pro4/MVP
    Sapphire HD 7850 2GB
    500GB Western Digital Caviar Blue 7200RPM
    SeaSonic S12II 430B 430W
    Coolermaster Storm Scout
    LG DVD Burner

    Total - ~$850


    That shouldn't have any problems with ultra high settings on any game at the moment. Also it should be pretty quiet and easy to upgrade.
