Okay I have never built my own PC but i am interested in it but i don't know if what i am planing on getting will be better or worst than the PS4.

SPECS:

CPU: AMD FD8320FRHKBOX FX-8320 FX-Series 8-Core Black Edition

Graphics Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 OC 2GB GDDR5 PCI-Express 3.0 DVI-I/DVI-D/HDMI/Displayport SLI Ready Graphics Card GV-N660OC-2GD

Ram:Corsair Vengeance 8GB (1x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (CMZ8GX3M1A1600C10)

Motherboard: ASUS M5A97 R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Case:Cooler Master Elite 431 Plus - Mid Tower Computer Case with USB 3.0

I have a DVD ROM, power supply 550w, and hdd already. Will this run Battlefield 4, Call of Duty Ghosts, Assassins Creed 4 better than PS4 or am i better of getting a PS4 for gaming?

I am guessing you are looking for a 399$ that is as good or better than the ps4? well i do not think you can, really.
the games are optimized on consoles but with the variety of the components on the PC you cant really get something as good for the same price.
but in the long run, the pc will kick ass.

If you're looking to get similar or slightly better performance than the PS4, get a Radeon 7950 or GTX 760 at the very least

Ideally at current pricing, get a Radeon 7970/280x, they would give you superior performance

The best thing about PC gaming is that machines are upgradeable and graphical options in games are tweakable

It'd also be a nice idea to get a 2x4GB RAM kit running in dual channel

The GTX 660 is about on par with the PS4's GPU in terms of raw power, but console hardware is locked down so developers can take full advantage of the hardware (this is where console fanboys always rant about optimization) whereas PCs have millions of configurations so it's hard to fully take advantage of PC hardware (hence why mantle seems promising)

Ok, here's where I see a little bit of an issue. You're going CPU-heavy and GPU-light. It's better for a gaming machine to be GPU-heavy and CPU-light. The best is GPU-heavy and CPU-average because you'll get the most for your money that way. Change the FX-8350 to an FX-6300 to free up $80. Change that GTX 660OC to an HD 7970. That specific GTX 660 you have is $170 after rebate so you should switch it to this HD 7970 for $250 after rebate:

The initial difference in cost will be $10. If you do that, you'll completely blow away the PS4 in gaming performance across the board for about the same price as your original spec.

If you wanna save some cash, you could always go with an FX-6300 with a nice cooler and overclock it

It would be a good idea to spend the extra cash on a better 7970/280x since that powercolor card isn't rated very well in terms of build quality (at least on newegg), the extra $40-50 would be worth it in the long run

LOL Really? A 760 lol my GTX 670 is better than a PS4's graphics power.
