Hello, I am trying to figure out a good gaming build. I want it to run current gen and next gen games well. I would like to be able to play games such as BF4 with a good frame rate on at least medium settings. Right now I will for sure have 8 GB RAM and I have most components figured out already. I am leaning towards buying an MSI GTX 760 as a GPU (if anyone can recommend a better card for about the same price feel free to do it) and I would like to know a CPU that would pair well with it. I would rather not overclock at all. I have no AMD or Intel preference. My price range is anything up to 200-ish U.S$ for the CPU. This is a gaming build.

Go with the Intel i5 4670k. Plenty of power and overclocking ability with the right cooling system (I've seen a lot of people going to 4.5Ghz with preconfigured water cooling like the Corsair H100i).

I would either go with the MSI Twin Frozr GTX760, or the EVGA GTX760 SC. Just make sure you get the one with the fan in order to ensure you don't build up too much heat.
