800 dollars you can pretty much get a new PC, if its worth it.
ivy bridge 3570k: ~230 dollars
nvidia 660 ti: ~270 dollars
i5 ivy bridge compatable motherboard: around 100-150 dollars
8 gigs ddr3 1600mhz ram, 4 sticks dual channel: around 70 dollars
700W psu: around 80 dollars
should come out to around 700-800 dollars (canadian, newegg.ca), not including anything else you might upgrade such as the HDD, case, etc.
i would recommend going with a sata 6gb/s capable motherboard and also picking up (or upgrading to later on) a 120g sata 3 SSD to run your OS and games on, because SSDs are simply magnificent.
also i would recommend you buy your hardware from places like newegg and tigerdirect, as they often sell the most stuff, and at the cheapest price. fast delivery, and they have good return policies too.
