Default $800 To spend.

So I finally sold my old rig for 950
-150 I owned my mom

I am left over with 800

Can you guys recommend me a good rig for gaming with my budget?

(I currently got no hardware at all.)

Thanks.

Sold it because, I burrowed money to get this build.

With the almost 50% profit i earned I can now make a build of my own, with my own money.

Opps, forgot to mention, I still have the Zalman fan, and ultimate.

Default Best components for the bang. (help)

I need to know the best ram for the bang (can pay up to 90, dont like rebates at all.)

Dvd burner drive (up to 30 not including shipping)
Power supply (no higher than $90)

And I was gonna say case, but seems like everyone recommends different things, So i will just go with the NZXT Lexa case.
