For $800, you'll have trouble getting crysis to even run.
Building a laptop is more expensive than buying one, and although I know next to nothing about it, it's probably not a good idea. ibuypower.com is the best way to go.
If you get a desktop, for $800, you can fit a 4850 HD into your budget, which can run crysis on high.
