Is this gaming pc compatible? 
Will I be able to add another GTX 760 GPU to this for the future (2-3 yrs)?
Is it good for recording
games like bf4?

If not what can I improve on my budget is £550?

Thanks! :D

Yes you can add another card later, but you might need to consider a new PSU when that time comes.
Recording yes, but would be better to record to a drive that your windows and programs are not saved to. For BF4 I don't really know, probably medium @1080p w/ a few settings on high. If you can play it, you can probably record it too.

Looks good, you'll prob want a CPU cooler, look at the Hyper 212 EVO, also do you have an OS?

Yes the components are compatible however the motherboard will bottleneck both the cpu and gpu meaning you are not getting the full potential out of them. Spend a little less money on the gpu, get an r9 270x instead and more on the motherboard. Also since the hdd is where most of the speed in your system comes from a western digital caviar black is a better idea.

The fx-8320 is bad for gaming also the 970a-g46 has problems with tdp's over 125 and processors with 8-cores i would go with this build instead:
It will run battlefield 4 on high or very high at 60fps and yes you will be able to add another 760 later on.

Is this better?

Also how would the motherboard bottleneck the components? ?

That's better. cheap motherboards normally don't have stuff like pci 3,0 which means you can't take the graphics card up to its full potential. The same thing happens for the core and the ram. Also the use an un-necessary amount of power. Produce a ton of heat and end up exploding.
