A suggestion to you. That CPU in your build is somewhat weak for these newest games. But your budget is limited so i put the best one you could afford in my build. The GPU in my build is a Tahiti LE which is stronger than R9 270x (based on HD 7870). The only thing i hesitate is the motherboard. But i think this one is good enough for this build.

I'm just worried about a possible drawback of CPU. An i5 could provide you with more future proofing in gaming. Although even with an i5 and a 7870XT you will possibly not be able to max out BF4 (in detail), you know right? What resolution does your monitor use, by the way?

Well, here is a review by Tom's about BF4 performance of various GPUs and also there is a CPU benchmark page through the end of review (10th page i guess). So it seems a 7870XT will probably do very nicely at your resolution. But i recall a "decent" CPU (like an i5 perhaps) will provide you with better experience in BF4. WoW also takes advantage of a faster CPU as i remember. Please take a look at this Tom's article about BF4 to have an idea:

By the way a HD 7870 XT at that price IS a steal in my opinion :)
