Will this build run Next-Gen games at Max/Ultra settings?

Currently I am planning a build for a new gaming rig, but have kept asking myself if what I have is adequate for what I want it to do. I would like to know if my system would be able to (theoretically) run Battlefield 4 or say GTA 5 at max settings once they are released. Specs are below, thank you in advance for your help. Also how did I do on picking parts for a sub-$1000 rig. (I know it shows $916 but I am ordering from Newegg and it comes to about $960)

    The gtx760 is a beast, and even on a mid range cpu like the FX6 it should max out most games for a long time. Have fun :)

    you should go for the FX-8320 at least !! it's way better for next gen games !! 8 cores will do well with next gen games i guess !

    Nice Graphics card Choice , It's Awesome for gaming !

    FX-8320 : http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=AMD+FX-8320+Eight-Core for $159

    FX-6100 : http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=AMD+FX-6100+Six-Core for $119

    is it worth the extra 40 dollars ?? you decide :) ..

    and yes , you'll be able to play GTA 5 ( if they released PC version ) and Battlefield 4 at Ultra settings with Good FPS .

    Thanks for the advice, turns out I can fit the FX-8320 in my budget. Can't wait till I get my new build, and hopefully in the future I can SLI two 760s and just have a beast.
