Would this PC actually run on high/ultra?
Is there any way to make it better/save money?
Would it run BF4?

This build will not work. The mobo has a am3+ socket and the cpu has a FM2 socket. The cpu will not plug into the mobo. He also spends $130 on a case. That's almost 1/4 off the budget. A decent case can be had for $50.

The guy blows his budget on non-important parts and loses out on parts that are important (eg the GPU, a 7750, really?).

Heres the gaming performance difference between the two systems:

The PC from that youtube video can play at about medium settings at 1080p or less.
The build above can do max settings on most games at 1080p, maybe crysis warhead and crysis 3 you have to turn down to high settings :p

I like your build, but could I use HDMI to connect to TV?
And also is it ready for wireless internet?
And I forgot to ask, will it run BF4?
