Question Buying gaming desktop, need help

I'm buying a new gaming computer and i need some insight. The budget that i am working with is 800 dollars give or take a little. I would primarily be using this computer for mmorpgs preferably on high settings. I prefer to have at least a 20" monitor, and some decent speakers.

If you have any suggestions please feel free to comment,

thanks in advance

Thats a good budget to build it yourself.

Its not hard, if you played with legos you can do this.

Depends where you live.

Newegg is the favorite for within us.

but there are also tigerdirect, chiefvalue and many more..

Try compiling a list yourself then we can check it over.
