Building new system, gtx 760/70/80 or ati alternative? CPU?

Hey, guys. I'm building a new computer most likely in the next couple months. I'm on a bit of budget, so I'll lay out basically what I believe to be a good option to do some *serious* gaming. and a bit of longevity that I want. And serious doesn't have to be 120FPS ULTRA MAXXXXXX SETTINGS. I'm fine playing 40fps on Ultra or 60 on High. And this may be my alternative to next-gen consoles - I'm not liking some of the stuff happening with them.



I'd like to stay under $700, but realize that may not be too viable.
I play games like Battlefield 3/4 on my PC, Skyrim, plan to play Elder Scrolls Online when its released, Minecraft, Kerbal Space Program.

What are your suggestions? Recommendations? Experiences? Opinions on PhysX vs no PhysX?
