Hey guys, I'm trying to help my girlfriend put together a gaming PC for under $800.

We're Canadian so please keep that in mind :)

Our current list is: PCPartList

Any advice would be appreciated!

why not get an I5-6500?

People on tomshardware were saying they are nearly identical in performance, I put together a 6500 build too though : http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/PVMdbj

ya but the I5-6500 is current gen so will have extra features etc. You could go with 8GB ram and be more than fine as well.
