  1. The link isn't working for me, it just shows your CPU. It might be might internet or something but what is your budget?
  2. I think it's great! I have pretty much the same exact build. I went with a tahti le tho. Almost a 7950. They were $250 in April when I bought it. Solid build.

    Only thing I may add is if you want to spend like another $20 bucks you can get a stock overclocked 6300 called a 6350!
  3. Thats a nice build, if I knew your budget and what games you want to play I could help a lot more. If you want to go a step higher, you could either get the AMD FX-8350 or Intel Core i5-3570K. And get the PowerColor Radeon HD 7970 3GB Video Card. If you switched to an Intel CPU you would have to get a compatible Motherboard.

    This is also a pretty good build, you can just keep your RAM though, I had this because I also do video editing. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1tZ0n
    Those could most likely max out BF4

    The build you have is fine though.

    -Cheaper version of the 7950, still runs and cools very well.
    -Better case and slightly upgraded the cpu and ram.
