Hey Im looking to build a good gaming pc. Is it possible to build a gaming pc that will play Battlefield 4 on ultra settings on at least 40 fps for only $600? I just want to build one the will play newer games (mainly battlefield 4 and Cod Ghosts) with the best possible graphics and best possible FPS.

$600 build + Ultra Settings + BF4 + 40 fps @ 1920 x 1080p = Not possible

Ultra? No. High? Most likely. "Decent?" Yes. You should be able to put something together with a FX-6300 on an Asus, ASRock, or Gigabyte 970 or 990 board, with 8GB of RAM and a GTX760, that will do a good job with BF4.

That particular "960" board is actually a 700-series chipset board, with older, slower interfaces. You want a 970 or 990, with an 850 Southbridge (they've got a "970DE" too, that is also a 700-series board with a liar-label on it). Otherwise, that parts list is good, but note that it involves rebates and/or promo codes which may vary when you actually buy.
