Here is a nice build I whipped up for you; http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Aaf4

You don't need a water cooler, 16GB RAM or 850W PSU and HD 6670 isn't going to play those games at max settings at 60 fps.

Also, just throwing out there, ATI doesn't exist any more, and there is no reason not to put an Intel CPU with an AMD graphics card - it's THE solution for price / performance right now.

At this price you'll get the gtx 660, if you want the 660ti you can save money by buying cpu+mobo from Microcenter and you'll save ~$70

For $850, you can build a pretty decent gaming rig.
I'd go for the following:
i5-3570k ($200)
AMD Radeon 7950 ($300) (about the same as 660 ti at stock clocks, but overclocks WAY better)
Any z77 mobo ($100) will work generally, find one for cheap, and before buying, look up some reviews of the board. I got my i5-3570k to 4.6 Ghz with a Hyper 212 plus ($30 air cooler). And I used the CHEAPEST z77 board I could find, even though the reviews generally sucked for it, I used the MSI Z77A-G41.
Hyper 212 Evo ($30)
8 Gigs of corsair, Kingston, gskill, or mushkin ram ($45)
Adata sx900, Kingston hyperX 3k, vertex 4, crucial m4, Samsung 830, or Samsung 840 pro 120/128 GB SSD ($100) get the cheapest
Get a corsair, seasonic, or xfx PSU (good from my experience and other reviews, not to say others are bad) 550-750 watt ($50-$80)
I know that it is above $850, however, I posted regular prices, look for sales and buy only if you get a somewhat decent deal, regular prices are BS, don't get ripped off. I got my mobo for $75, 8 GB ram for $30 128 GB SSD for $70 hyper 212 plus for $15, GOOD DEALS ARE OUT THERE!
Good Luck.
