I had some plans about the pc

  1. the cost should not be more than 800$

  2. it had too look stylish

  3. it could play games at high resolution

this is what i come up with hope you could make some chances

You need to be far more specific about "play games at high resolution"...do you want to play the latest games with solid 50+ FPS at 1080p? As you can see, you're well over budget so here's another option to consider that maximizes that budget with the option to upgrade later when the next gen (Broadwell) i5 is released.

thank you for your opinion, i am not looking too play the newest games out there. Mostly games like Skyrim and far cry 3. And then some mount and blade and other old titles. Of course also mount and blade Bannerlord, when that comes out. Was not convinced on which grapichs card too pick. And how much power was needed. Again thank you

Tiny bit over budget, but I don't want to cut down on anything else.

Here's something I've had saved in my parts list. It should be able to run all of the newest games on ultra at the highest resolutions (290x is supposedly a beast of a card). It's also under $800, but doesn't include a SSD (not really needed in my opinion). Style is whatever to me. Not like the computer will be going anywhere lol. I'm not sure why the other guy went with such a cheap CPU other than the upgrading possibility. If you're looking to play games like Skyrim/Far Cry, you could have a cheaper budget (like around $600), and you'd be fine and save some money.
