Hello,
I Have Recently Been Searching For A Build That I Could Do For Myself. I Have Been Wanting To Purchase One But I Would Prefer To Build One Myself, I Need Some Builds If You Could Use http://pcpartpicker.com/ That Would Really Help If You Could Use That I Need To Run Games In High Quality.
Just Need Some Tips On This! P.S I Need Something That Can Record In 1080p Aswell!

No

You have a cpu that can overclock , a motherboard that cant
slow old expensive memory
a graphics card that cannot play games
a sound card you do not need
and an inadequate power supply

cpu is an overkill and the GPU is lacking... you wont even be able to pull medium on BF3....
I suggest a 2500k/3570k (around $200) for cpu...saving around $100...
then as much money as your willing to spend on GPU.. HD7850 can be picked up around $190 and will benefit you exponentially adding around $40 to the price of your build if you downgrade the CPU to something less over the top.

Here are some things you might want to change:

The power supply is not beefy enough for that system.

The processor can overclock but the motherboard will not allow it. If you want the i7, then go for the i7-3770K and a Z77 motherboard. I would go for the i5 3570K though.

The Nvidia GT210 is a very very very slow card for FPS shooters.

Get the CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO as a CPU cooler.

Get rid of the sound card for gaming.

Did above while OP was suggesting "up to $1700". With that, better case, HD7970, and power supply to be capable of crossfire, if of use, would be within budget, plus sound card, if OP really wants one.

Nice build , except for possibly the case . A white case with a black monitor speakers etc just looks silly IMO

Change the case to the Antec 300 TWO
