New build around 800$

I could use some help picking parts, could somebody please recommend a build based on my preferences?


Budget Range: $800

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Microsoft word, learn programming.

Are you buying a monitor: no

Do you need to buy OS: No


Preferred Website(s) for Parts: I would prefer newegg but it doesn't matter.

Location: U.S.A.

Parts Preferences: None really what ever you think is best.

Overclocking: Possibly, budget permitting.

SLI or Crossfire: not now later on maybe.

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920 by 1080

Additional Comments: I will also be looking to upgrade in the near future I will not be needing a lot of space because I'm not looking to SLI or Crossfire (yet) so I could go with a smaller case but I still want the motherboard to be ATX. I would like to be playing most games on high settings like TF2, Counter strike Go, and other games like guild wars 2.

Why I Am Upgrading: New experience and I need a new computer so I figure I'll build it myself.
Thanks in advance. :D

  1. See this thread: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/373037-31-what-budget-gaming-build

    You don't need an OS, so you could go with a 3570K and Z77 board, but otherwise the same kind of build would be perfect.
