~$800 Cyber Monday Gaming Build for Planetside 2

Things that I have:

* Monitor
* Keyboard
* Mouse
* 2x4GB RAM 1600 DDR3 Corsair Vengeance (could replace with 1x8gb)
* 128GB SSD

Things potentially want and will pay extra for:

* High refresh rate monitor (LCD)

Thanks for any assistance. Looking forward to getting back in the fray!

Notes: will be needing a copy of windows 7 64bit. Don't necessarily need hdd right away.
