Whilst I agree Rowcons post was rather broad and not very detailed that kind of sarcasm / attitude wont get you the kind of help you are seeking round here.

What about this build:
Intel Core i5-4670K, MSI GeForce GTX 760 - System Build - PCPartPicker

it doesn't include a case sense the case is VERY much about personal taste.
It doesn't include an OS ether.

Total Price = 790 USD
__________________________________________________ ______________________

CPU:
I didn't choose an I7 sense the only difference is hyperthreding. If you want to keep the cost down, an I5 is a better choice.
You are only gonna see a difference in compressing/decompressing and CPU rendering.
The I5 i chose is overclockable. so if you desire free extra performance, then go nuts.. just remember to get a better cooler if your overclock is more than a minor increase.

PSU:
The PSU is a quality gold validated modular 750W power supply. Plenty for your needs and it's gonna help keep the watt usage down.
It's also way easier to have a clean look and airflow due to no unnecessarily cords.

Motherboard:
Everything you need at a dissent price. Also quite clean looking.

RAM:
8 gigabyte. It's a 1600mzh dual channel kit running at CasL at 9.
The price is good for what you get and it will meet your needs.
It also has a low voltage usage.

GPU:
The 760 is plenty for most people. I didn't see you writing anything about playing the most recent games at high quality.
This card will handle all new games at 60FPS with mid graphic settings.
This card also has a 3-party cooling design. It will make it a little quite and run less hot.

as for the harddrive and optical drive i prioritized price. You get what you need here, unless you are ready to jump on the SSD train.

Biker put together a great build. If you want to spend a bit more money go for a gtx 770 but other than that its really solid.

No need. COD is the biggest thing he'll be playing. He could actually get a 750 and it wouldn't make a difference
