I want to play minecraft and BF4. What FPS would I get in both below 720p? Medium high graphics in BF4 and all high in Minecraft(possibly shaders). Thanks! Build :

It is OK and should handle 720P fine with that card. How many FPS I do not know since all benchmarks are done on 1080P nowadays but should be acceptable.

It looks good but I personally haven't been a fan of the powercolor coolers. They tend to be loud, and they also get about 5-6 degrees hotter than the other coolers. If you have 10 extra dollars I would get http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-video-card-gvr785... it comes out of the box with a more aggressive overclock but it will stay cooler than the powercolor one while also making less noise

Looks nice, I'd change a couple things though which will allow you to buy a 270x which will run BF4 on ultra 720p ;) .
The CPU: Take a FX 6300
MB: Asus M5A97 R2.0 - you have a micro version??
RAM: Crucial ballistix sport 8GB OR G skill sniper series 8gb - cheaper compared to corsair / same speeds.
HDD: WD caviar blue 1TB - You won't see a difference between red and blue honestly... Blue = cheaper.
GPU: R9 270x
Case: NZXT Source 210 - no need for a 60$ case ;) 

Rest is fine, maybe a 500w PSU as the 270x's minimum recommended PSU is 500w.

The cpu is overpriced
The motherboard is bad
The psu is not good enough
The video card is cheap
You could really do a whole lot better for $750 honestly
