Building a Gaming Computer for a friend

How's the build. I need to keep this under $850 and preferably $800. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Amosch/saved/21x7
Any suggestions, and what kinda FPS in 1080p can I get with this rig?

    I know this is way off the budget, but it packs a GTX770 with an 80+ Gold rated PSU and what I believe is a better CPU for (~$65) off budget.

    -Cheaper, better quality psu.
    -Newer, stronger processor.
    -Cheaper board. No need for 990X/990FX seeing as you don't plan to SLI.
    -Cheaper RAM.
    -Cheaper HDD.
    -Better case

    I changed the RAM. It's cheaper.
