Is this a decent gaming pc for 1000 dollars? I would like to play battlefield 4 on ultra 60 fps or higher. The reason I chose the i7 4770k is because id like to possibly stream or record without having fps loss. I plan on buying on black friday - cybermonday and everything will be from newegg.com. Hope there will be good deals so it gets lowered to 1000 dollars. Here is what i came up with.

I was thinking about instead of getting 60 fps on ultra I could try and get a card to play 60 fps on high then eventually id upgrade the videocard. what card would get 60 fps or higher on high settings for the lowest amount of money

Will you be overclocking or SLI-ing/Crossfiring in the future? If not, then that 750W PSU might be a little too much.

Oh. well then that'll do fine. Also saw your question about the shadowplay thing. I'm not sure if it can livestream but it sure records well though. Most people who record/livestream do it in 720p since it's enough quality for videos these days. Also you could consider lowering the settings a teeny bit to get great fps improvement.

Well it's okay. But to get the best results, go with i7.

go with fx 8350 if you play games like bf4 or crysis 3
look here fx 8350 beat i5 4670k in battlefield 4 cpu dependant levels:
http://www.bf4blog.com/battlefield-4-retail-gpu-cpu-ben...
in the other parts though, there is not much difference http://www.techspot.com/review/734-battlefield-4-benchm...
or in crysis 3 fx 8350 beat i7 3770k http://www.pcgameshardware.de/Crysis-3-PC-235317/Tests/...
If you bought fx 8350, you could stream even better than i7 with this cpu, and buying fx 8350 for 200$ will give you enough room to buy r9-290 (non-x) wich will be released on 5th November

The 8350 is basically the 8320 factory overclocked. And also, if not compared with intel, the fx series are great processors all in all. I say go with the 8320 and overclock it yourself. Maybe this build shall cater to your needs?

You can take out the SSD to save more money (if you don't want it in there.) I've heard nothing but good things about Noctua coolers, so that one might be useful if you overclock. Same thing for the PSU. Anyways, that should fit your $1k budget.

Sure thing man. That build you posted is a lot better and a bit more expensive. But if you prefer it, go ahead. It will provide you with all your needs really (oc, sli, smooth streaming) Good luck :) 
(Plus you can record endless gaming hours with shadowplay with that 770)

AMD win the PS4 battle and new games ported from console to PC can play better with AMD cpu-s. Now AMD can use real power of his cpus. This is the truth. Don`t buy an Intel cpu for future gaming. FX-8350 beat i7-3770K in Battlefield 4 and crysis 3, and FX-9590 is clear over i7-4770K in new games and streaming.
