Ok so i am new to pc gaming and i have a max budget of $850 including shipping and handling and i want to play games such as call of duty,minecraft,Battlefield 3,day z,skyrim....etc. Basically all up to date games. I would prefer intel as the CPU, and i am going to use my Tv as a moniter temporarily so i dont need one. As well i would like to play the games listed on high to very high settings.Any suggestions out there?

Are you overclocking?
Do you need an OS?
Where do you live?

I live in Georgia USA and I'm not sure how to over clock but I would prefer not to if I don't have to cause I don't want to deal with over heating(I don't know if overclocking will cause that I have just heard that before) and I would like windows 7 OS

Locked processor and motherboard, so you can't overclock.
7870 XT, great gpu for the money. It's usually about the $240-250 price point but its at $210 after rebate. It's stronger than the 7870 but weaker than the 7950.
