This is what I could come up with. It's going to ensure maxing out games like BF4 on a 1080P monitor with 60 FPS.

I would honestly recommend maybe the other guy's build, his has an SSD and an over all better GPU. I think he would bea better choice, just remember to have the OS install on the SSD.

Edit: I'm assuming you're going to overclock and buy an operating system. If not tell me so I can change it.

I don't know the first thing about overclocking it and yes I will separately get an operating system. And thank you for the advice and help
