Stats:

 

It needs to be a Desktop

My budget for the new computer is: $800

I will be using it for hardcore gaming, ark, COD and other high intensity games.

It will need to be capable of running a recording program, like OBS, a calling program, like Skype or Discord, a web browser, like google, and a game at the same time.

I will not store a lot of pictures or music on this computer.

I would like to get an Alien ware PC if it is under budget but that is not likely. Any gaming PC that you believe is reliable will do if it can meet my standards.

I am only planning on using 1 monitor but I will probably use 2 eventually.

I want a windows computer. Preferably i7, 16GB of RAM, 1TB of hard drive space, 4 GB dedicated to graphics, and a quad core processor.

Now if someone could find that under $800 that would be extremely awesome, but that might not be the case so here is my minimum stats:

Windows, i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, 500 GB of hard drive space, 2GB dedicated to graphics, and dual core.  

EDIT: I found something that reaches my top standards, but I do not know if it is trustworthy. Could someone check this out to see if it’s legit:

Thanks for all of your help :)

That system has poor PSU (because they don't say what it is, it's crap). If you can build computer yourself, you can get much better one as you can select parts. Is that possible?

It is possible, but I have never done something like this before so I do not know how to build it or where to get the parts. Do you know what I should do?

I can tell what parts. You basically have following choices:

- Build it yourself (guides are available)

- Buy from "local shop" that builds it for you

- Buy from online shop that allows to choose parts you want and then builds computer

Depends on what country you are. USA?

If yes, examples:

https://www.cyberpowerpc.com/
https://www.originpc.com/
http://www.ibuypower.com/
https://www.pugetsystems.com/

Tell which one(s) of those are OK and I configure good machine.

Yes I do live in the USA. Cyberpower and Ibuypower looks like they will work so go ahead and give it a go if you want.

OK, here goes, some kind of sale there and that's why I picked some parts I wouldn't take normally. Like RX 480 reference (very cheap), FX-8350 (free upgrade from FX-8320e), TLC SSD (free upgrade from 90GB drive) and so on.
