I need all parts for a whole new computer, motherboard, case, etc...
at least 4 GB RAM

All under 800$

Preferably from newegg.com

If you are good at this, then I would appreciate you getting me a new computer set-up.

LoL... I can't really build it for you seeing as I am in Australia, I shall recommend some parts for you :). But first... is this computer for gaming, or multimedia or just general purpose?

I know you said all under $800, but because I didn't know what purpose the machine would serve, I tried my best to cover all aspects.

Personally, if it's a gaming machine you seek. I would kill the amd processor and mobo and get an intel core2duo. The graphic card should cover your arse in any need. 4gbs of ram is alot, but I guess nowdays, you need that... especially for vista. There is a few smaller (but possibly necessary) things like cd-drive, audio card etc... that I didn't include.

Everything was under $800 BEFORE the PSU was added. I put a bigger wattage one in because I figured it should cover you incase you want to a second GFX card or some extra harddrives down the track.

Bear in mind this is only a rough (yet very decent) template. You can give or take more or less if you want less power in any component.

I know USD is different to AUD, that's why I did it with the prices newegg stated. WWIII, there's nothing fancy about that system apart from the case. If you want it for gaming, get a core2duo mobo/cpu instead. Unless you get the top of the line amd processor, conroe is the best solution for performance, power and price.
