Hi guys,
I leave in Mongolia and i have extreme difficulties to find cheap quality parts for the build that i'm preparing in order to play bf4.

Anyway, i finally found a cpu and gpu that are within my budget:
- i5 3470
- GTX 660

What kind of gaming experience can i expect from this? medium high? no lag? good fps? I'm not a pro-gamer but i want to enjoy my gaming experience!

I'm planning to play with my large flat screen tv. Is it bad?

i could upgrade the GPU to a GTX 760 for 100usd more and that's kind of a lot for me now.... Is it worth it?

Is there a store native to your country that you are planning to buy from? If so please post it.

Yes it's a store in Mongolia. It's a small mall named computer land, full of small independant reseller. So i have to go from shop to shop to find the best parts at the best price.

So far my idea is the folowing with approx prices (i buy local currency):

cpu: i5 3470 @ 3.2 Ghz / 190usd
gpu: GTX 660 / 260usd
Mobo: Asus Z87-K ATX LGA1150 / 148usd
Memory: Corsair 2x4GGb RAM / 83usd
Storage:500Gb 7200rpm / 50usd
Power supply: 550W / 92usd
Operating system: Windows 8.1 64bit / free
optical drive: 18usd
Case: 65usd
No monitor as i will use my tv

Do i need a cpu cooler? i found a Cooler master Hyper 212 Evo / 30 usd

That bring us to a total of 906.00usd without cpu cooler, keyboard and mouse.
I may have other choices for the mother board as well. But not sure if i should go for a cheaper one.

No Overclocking then the cooler not needed but your CPU lga1155 and motherboard lga1150 are different sockets. One needs to change most likely motherboard so go for Z77 or H77 chipset board.
