Hello all! looking to make myself my first rig and figured with black friday it would be one of the best times to make one. I was looking for a build with a budget less than 800 dollars (including a keyboard). I was looking for whatever you could get at that price for optimized gaming. any and all builds are appreciated! I was trying to make one myself and ended up with this: PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

is there a specific reason other than price?

It should overclock better than the 8350 while being 2/3's the price. It's really the only deal atm that comes even remotely close to justifying an AMD processor (and even then they are still slow).
