Check out my $850 build here:

Since Microcenter sells the i5 3570K for only $190, pair it with this which is only $109 with the i5 3570K and you're good to go. (saved $76)

Just add windows in there from Newegg.

With the money saved upgrade to the 7870 (+70)

Now you'll easily be able to get Max settings on those games.

It's suggested in my build guide :p 

And for the keyboard and mouse. Any cheap one will last you awhile. I found that most gaming mice die on you depending on how reliable. But usually a cheapo mouse and keyboard are fine.
