$850 max! gaming pc build?

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?
