A bit overbudget, but this build will definitely be better for bf4.

Going by this budget & preference:
"very high setting but my price range i want under 800 any good builds"
I would advise you to go for something more like this;

The system above should be perfectly capable of running the games you listed at high with decent frame rates, the 6300 will handle the games well, the HD7870 is great for most games but may struggle on very high settings on planet side 2, other than this it should handle all you throw at it.

OR, if you are willing to spend a little closer to $800; this:

The system above should be perfectly capable of running the games you listed at high+ with good frame rates, the 6350 is fairly future proof and will handle the games well, the 660 Ti is a great card for the price and i believe you well get a good few years out of that GPU

Single channel RAM will hurt performance. Also, OP will probably need a faster HD since he does not have an SSD.
