I have just spent a solid 3 hours making this build. I have found that the graphics card I used is the mid-range choice for the BF4 Best Graphics
Cards. Here is my build: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/IAmMatt907/saved/2kvN

I am not looking to overclock I just want to play next gen and current gen, I am wondering can this play games such as:
BF3
BF4
Borderlands 2
Borderlands
GTA IV
Arma II DayZ Mod
Counter strike series
Call of duty: 4
Call of duty black ops
Fallout: New Vegas
And some more of the next gen games?

Also if there are any changes that are around the same price that can give me better performance, that would be great. I had no help from anyone about this build, please help me out and tell me if it can play the games I have listed, and more, Thanks!

I don't have the money for a i5 or else I would have gone with it. But I will change to the MSI 760 Gaming Edition, thanks!

I think I would scrap that whole build, you can definitely get a better gaming rig for $800, and I'd veto the case and PSU choices.

I would do this:

Intel will be much better for gaming than an FX-8350, I went with a much better case and power supply choice.

That doesnt have Windows 7, thats why I have the other build, is because windows 7 needs to be included.
