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?

I am too lazy to actually make a build, but her is what to do:

Get an i5 (3570k, 4670k, or non K if you don't want to overclock)
Get a z77 (for 3570k) or z87 (for 4670k) motherboard.
Get 8gb 1600mhx 2x4gb RAM
Get a 1tb 7200rpm HDD
Get a case from Antec, Coolermaster, Corsair, NZXT
Get a 550-650w PSU from Antec, XFX, Corsair, Seasonic
Get the best GPU you can afford (gtx770,hd7950)
Get a $17 optical drive
