i7 = useless for gaming. Take it from me, a guy with a 6-core i7.

CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($222.00 @ Amazon)
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler ($98.99 @ Best Buy)
Motherboard: ASRock Z87 Extreme6 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($134.99 @ Micro Center)
Memory: Patriot Viper 3 Low Profile Red 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory ($66.29 @ Amazon)
Storage: PNY XLR8 240GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($99.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($54.98 @ OutletPC)
Video Card: Gigabyte Radeon R9 290X 4GB Video Card ($549.99 @ Newegg)
Case: Rosewill ARMOR-EVO ATX Full Tower Case ($74.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: SeaSonic G 550W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply ($79.99 @ Amazon)
Total: $1382.21 --- $1462.21 before MIR, $30 on the mobo and $40 of the GPU are the only 2 worth doing, the other 2 are a $5 and a $10.

Not sure you can get it any faster for the money. Get whichever OS you want, I left room.

Rough prices from Amazon.com, PCpartpicker doesn't work on these computers at work.

Case: $92 - Fractal Design R4
CPU: $235 - Intel i5 4670k
Mobo: $140 - Asus Z87-A LGA1150
Cooler: $109 – Corsair 100i
RAM: $65 - Kingston Hyper X Blu 8gb 1600 CL9
GPU: $509 - EVGA GTX 780 SC with ACX cooler
PSU: $122 - EVGA SuperNova G2 750watt
SSD: $90 - Samsung 840 EVO 120GB
HDD: $60 - Western Digital Blue 1TB
OS: $105 – Windows 8.1
--Total: $1527

Tons of overkill on the PSU, in case he wanted to go SLI in the future. If your friend REALLY wants that i7 (he doesn't need it), you can swap out the gtx780 for a 770 and that gives you the money you'd need for the i7. GTX 770 is more than capable of maxing out Dota2, Wildstar, and probably ESO. You'll get the 60+ FPS in BF4 you want him to have. SLI 770's would shred anything to pieces at 1080p.

I never throw in a case. This is an aesthetic thing and people have different needs. For all I know (and have done) I've put together a PC in a pizza box and it's worked perfectly. If OP has an issue with no case, I'll reconfigure as needed.

EVGA SuperNova G2 is 2$ more then the Seasonic G, For those 2$ he gets 100 watts extra and much better ripple suppression and voltage regulation . So in this case i agree spend those 2$ extra its well worth it
