**Need help with $800 gaming Build**

I've been on Newegg trying to come up with a gaming build for $800 dollars, but I just can't seem to make it work. I need EVERYTHING except a mouse. I need a monitor, keyboard, speakers, and OS (legit windows 7 oem). I mainly plan on using it for playing LoL, surfing the web, and schoolwork. I think an i3 2100 might work, but I can't get the total under $800.

Thanks for any help or advice.
