I already own a monitor/keyboard/mouse and I was wondering for some advice on a $850 build
I previously posted with a $580 build but it turns out I have more money than expected (650$) and im selling my old box to a friend for $200. This would also mean I will now need a new box/memory.

Here's what I had in my previous build

Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Comb [...] mbo.975660

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card (100314-3L ) ~159.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6814102948

CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W ATX12V ~ 89.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 38566&SID=

But obviously it could be improved now I need more money? I also need a case and looking for 8gb of memory.

So which parts are you looking to purchase - case, motherboard, RAM, second GPU?

Do you plan to overclock?
Do you plan to SLI/xFire in the future?
Which parts do you still need?

I don't specifically plan on overclocking unless someone could give me a good cost efficency reason why (Im just not really an expert on it.)

Only plan to SLI or crossfire if it doesnt make my system more expensive but leaves that option for later

parts i still need: MB, CPU, GPU, HDD, OD, RAM, PSU, & Case

thanks for all the help guys.
