First off thanks for responding build looks pretty good. I don't plan to overclock.
About how much fps do you think this will get on Cod, Minecraft?
Also is it worth it to upgrade to an i7 if it's compatible?

Games don't use hyperthreading so an i7 wouldn't be worth it. The 770 can play BF4 at ultra with 60 fps so it will easily max out the other games you listed.

Well, I can tell you what I have in my computer and the prices on each if that would help you. My computer runs very very well, I have multiple screens and play multiple games at once, with no lag.
Intel i7 4th gen (300-330)
Nvidia GeForce 660 TI (200-300)
Asus Z87 Pro (300)
Water Cooling stuff ( In all about $400)
Level 10 GT Thermaltake Snow Edition Case (200)
1k watt Rosewill gold (170)
A crappy 1 TB hardrive ($50-75)
Twelve Gigabytes of RAM (Ran me about 100-200 can't remember exactly)
This is a pretty good build, I would like to improve my GPU and my Harddrive, but don't have the money currently.(Want a SSD) In total this would run you about one to two thousand, which seems like a lot, but trust me, when you build a computer you won't stop buying new parts.

If you have $800 to spend you don't want to buy a prebuilt computer. They are generally overpriced or what they are. For $900 you could get a decent set up, and putting it together yourself is not at all difficult. The first computer I ever built, I built by myself with no instructions. This is just a suggestion for you. If you have any questions, or need any help feel free to message me.
