Default New Build ; i7 ; $800 Max

Hello,

My old build, Around 10 months old now, is being handed down to my brother as I am getting a new one.

I'm looking for a build around $800 max. Also looking for Intel, Preferabley i7.

I don't care much about HDD, I'd say maybe around 500gb.

And one more thing, I only need around 4 GB's of RAM. Unless there is a good deal laying around for 6.

If any more info is needed let me know.
Regards,
Dylan

what do you use your computer for? would you also need an OS and monitor?

i7 may be difficult to do do with $800... but answer the questions and i'll see what i can do.

I won't need an OS as I have Windows 7 Ultimate, and I have Two monitors already.

I'm also going to mainly be using it for Gaming, Coding (C++, PHP, etc..), and Web Design (Photoshop). Mostly Gaming though.

Also, I'm willing to go upto $1000.

EDIT: I'm also thinking for a case, a Antec 1200, Just a thought though.
