Best build for $800 budget help please.

Hello

So I'm trying to build pretty much a gaming computer for $800 or less or a little more if need be. I just want to mainly play games on high graphics. Playing on ultra would be nice but not really a must have thing.
I haven't built a computer in years, and this is what I've come up with so far. Don't really know if this is a good build or not, or if there is a build that is cheaper and will still preform at high settings for upcoming games.
Resolution that I play at is - 1920x1080
Any suggestions would be great!
Thanks ahead of time.

    Why would you pay that much for a 270x? This build gets you the same CPU, much better PSU, and a better GPU - GTX 760.
