Knowing a budget is half the work.

You might try Dell.  Look at their "gaming desktop deals" and find something you like for about 75-80% of  your budget.  Spend the remainder on a graphics card.  When looking at Nvidea cards, remember that the last 2 numbers are the important part.  A 680 is worlds better than a 920, for example.   That said, for you budget you could pick up a GTX 960 that would do a good job with SL. Do not get anything with a final number less than 50.

 

Anyway, what to look for would be a i5 gen 5 or higher processor, 8GB or more RAM, Nvidea GTX 970 or something close.  Solid state drive is nice but not necessary,

well i went to the usa newegg and made a config that i believe it will run sl GREAT  although i am from europe and i am pretty sure after some research you can achieve a bit better price you can actually make a little beast with 800 bucks !!!

case:Corsair CC-9011075-WW Carbide Series 100R  49.99

HDD: TOSHIBA DT01ACA200 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB  67.70

SSD:SanDisk SSD PLUS 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC 59.65

Power Supply : SeaSonic G Series SSR-550RM 550W ATX12V / 80 PLUS GOLD 69.90

RAM: Team Elite Plus 8GB (2 x 4GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400  55.99

motherboard : MSI B250M MORTAR LGA 1151 Intel B250 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 83.99

CPU : Intel Core i5-7500 3.4 GHz LGA 1151 204.99

Graphics Card :GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1060 DirectX 12 GV-N1060D5-6GD REV2 6GB  249.99

Tottal :842.4    some have mail and rebate options that i have no clue how it works  so the price can get very very very close to 800 if still the cost for any reason can not get a little bit over 800 then you can replace the  GTX 1060 6gb with one with 3gb that cost 199 usd so the final cost it will be 792$ with out mail and rebates that as i told i do not know how they work :P   also i picked up the parts kind of fast use this configuration as a baseline  about what you can get with 800 usd !

 

if you live close to a microcenter from what i know they have great prices also  you can go there and pick your parts and ask em to asemble it for you  i think is free   

*if you plan to use it absolutely only for sl and internet surfing ... the 6 gb 1060 is not necessary buy with out fear the 3gb  if you game in general  though try to squeeze in the 1060 6gb 

**8gb are enough for today what ever 2x4 gb kit you get  leaves you open the option in the future to add another 8gb if you need it !
