Default Around 800$ to build a new gaming computer, HELP!

Okay so im big into FPS games and im looking to buy a new one to be ready for a few upcoming games ill be playing. I'm looking to spend around 800$ but would like to spend a little less, but im not afraid to pay more for a beastly setup that will give me the best performance for high end games. I don't know much about any of the latest types of mobos card and cpus, so im wondering if anyone here could give me an example setup that would be best for me. Im going to order all the pieces seperate to save money instead of ordering a complete one. I have an OS ofc, so i wont need any software, just hardware,
Thanks guys.

this card will be better, i've read that it performs nearly as well as the 4890.

and the P55 motherboards only accepts dual channel RAM, the only motherboard type that supports triple channel RAM is the X58
