Noob trying to build $700-800 gaming pc.

Hello and thank you for looking at my post. Well i'm a noob trying to get into pc gaming. I refuse to buy a new console so I bought a few games like Simcity 2013, Bioshock Infinite and many others on steam. I tried to play them and found out I don't have a good pc to do that. So saw this site and created a account and I rely on you folks to help me build a good pc. I'd like a good one around $700-800. I'd like to purchase a monitor also but that will be separate from the budget. I'd like to play at decent fps in which I don't know what that is. I'd like to make it as cheap as possible please :)

I was gonna buy a pc on a site called cyberpower and saw some of these things. I don't know if these are any good but these were the things I was gonna buy but then came here to ask first.

AMD FX-8320 3.50 GHz Eight-Core AM3+ CPU 8MB L2 Cache & Turbo Core Technology
AMD Radeon R9 270X 2GB GDDR5 16X PCIe 3.0 Video Card

Like I said i'm a noob at this so if anyone can help a noob out i'd be very happy. :)
