I'm wanting to build my brother a gaming pc. I would like to get him a decent priced one for, hopefully no more than about $800, but definitely no more than $850. I plan on giving him one of my wow accounts. And my old pc which I'm replacing now won't cut it. I'd appreciate some help on this guy's and girls. I'm looking for great performance and no lag. 1 monitor for now.

I thought I'd use the extra $50 as you get a GTX 970 and a decent monitor out of it.
