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:

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.
