Windows 7: Changing from gaming laptop to PC, advice?

Windows 7 64 bit
Changing from gaming laptop to PC, advice?

My asus g60jx laptop recently went down with a fried motherboard [ =( ], I had originally planned on getting another asus as I really enjoyed the one I had. Im starting to wonder wether or not I should get a PC instead.

I really just want something powerful enough to play modern games and maintain good fps etc... I dont need a "master of the universe" computer, something around 700-800 dollars. I have seen the refurbed asus's for around that price and it seems most come with the i7, 1.5-2gb graphics, 6-8gb ram etc. What I am really wondering is, how much more could I get for the same money out of a pc? Or how much would similar speccs cost for a pc? I love the mobility of a laptop, but if i can save a few hundred and get the same thing I would be pretty stoked.

TLDR: What kind of PC can I get for ~800$ that will play games well. Or just point me in the right direction.
