Best gaming rig for ~$850
Including a monitor and windows, can anyone point me in a good starting direction--specifically processor and GPU.
I prefer newegg.com for prices

If you'd like all that maybe you want a laptop?
If not then look at this desktop
If not prebuilt than thinks are way easier to pick out as its cheaper but the same thing as overpriced prbuilt ones.
You're better off with a i5-3470 and a h77 mobo, if the price of those two are cheaper than the cpu from amd+mobo.
And get a better gpu like the 660 gtx or 7870...
Also that ram sucks, get proper corsair ram : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145345
I'd stay away from laptops if it's for gaming, they cost a lot for the performance you'll want, the 7850/660/7870 desktop beats almost any mobile gpu.
just a suggestion about operating system,
i think u should go with windows 8,
to save money!!
until the end of jan 2013 windows 8 has really low price,
and is is a lot more cheaper than win7.
u should definately check out the price in your country.
I have windows 8 too,
and it is not as bad as some people say it is, it is actually nice and very different than all the other windows.
and given that it is cheap until jan u should buy it
Xttony said:What I suggested above is already exceeding your price range. If you already have that setup get a new processor and use the HD 7870. If you don't have 1440p or multi monitor setup then 7870 can handle pretty much all games.
This question is for a NEW build, not my current one.
Also your suggestions are much much higher than $850 if you factor in a monitor, case, and windows 8
there u go
ofcourse these are just reference prices.
if u look for each specific part separately u find them cheaper than the ones in the list
and in case u dont know,
the p in 3350p (it means that the cpu does not have intel hd graphics, but since u have a 7870 u dont need it anyway)

The cost of the build I suggested was $920
You can get a slower processor like Fx8120 $160 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103961
Fx6100 $120 or fx6300 $140
PSU $60 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139048
GPU HD 7870 GHz $195 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202010
Monitor hp $120 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824176288
Which will decrease you cost by $180, $200 or $220 depending on the processor you buy.
Fx 8350 is a very good CPU and it is better not to remove it.
Total $700, $720, $740 or $780.
