Smile 800-950 To spend

I have about 800-950 to spend on a new rig. I have everything else so this is just for the tower. I play games and want to build it around that. I have a friend who will put it together for me but i just wanted to see what parts everyone would go with. Thanks

This probably belongs in the high end building section, as you can get an i5/5850 for this amount of money

An i5 / 5850 is not a High-End PC nor will you buy one for $800-950.

But you will be able to buy a very nice Mid-Range. I'm sure someone with some knowledge will be along to help you shortly. If not I'll post you a system when I done checking out all the new posts

Edit: Well I'm not very good at budget shopping as you said $950 and this totals $1003.92 after rebates, but it should scream thru almost every game
