I'm planning to buy all the peripherals on Black Friday and all the parts on Cyber Monday (Hopefully I'll get a couple of sales including my parts) I just want to finalize my parts and make sure I have everything correct.

I will use this PC to mainly game.
(Arma 3, Crysis 3, Battlefield 4)
I want to keep this build for a while so I want to ensure that it can run all current games on Ultra or Very High.

And what do you want to do with it. If gaming, what kind of games do you play?

Also do you need an OS and monitor? Anything from your current rig that you will be keeping?

All of that should work great! All of the current generation games will run on high, even ultra, you have it all set up.

Best solution

This should be able to do everything that you need, and you can always get another 8GB of ram down the line, and it you really want to overclock, get a custom loop xD.

The only thing I can see that I would change would be get 1600mhz instead of 1866mhz, saves you a couple bucks, and virtually the same performance with Haswell CPUs when gaming.

There isn't anything I can improve >.>
Guess I did my research right...

You can improve, but you don't need to.
