I started making a pc but I only have a 800 dollar budget. My build resulted in this:
If any one has any suggestions on switching certain parts please tell me. Also does my build have over clocking potential? Also how many FPS will I get if I run a game in 1080p? How can I get a minimum of 40fps?

your build has no real overclocking potential as it uses a non "k" series cpu. There is some limited overclocking you can do with the turbo or BCLK, but those would be minor changes at best. here is a build with a significantly improved gpu, and has some overclocking headroom.

(the build above this one is in the same as your original build, as in it has no real overclock potential, non-overclocking mb and a non-overclocking chip. if anything that build has less overclocking potential then yours)
