For a school project I have been trying to come up with a build that can play games on high settings at decent FPS (45+) I have been doing research, and I have put 75+ hours into this project. And I believe I have a build that will fit my needs. My needs are Gaming, Live streaming, recording, playing music, multi tasking, homework, and internet surfing.

Games I want to play:
World of Warcraft
Minecraft (FTB Mod pack mostly)
Guild Wars 2
Path of Exile
StarCraft II
CoD: Ghosts
Left 4 Dead 2 With mods
Arma II: DayZ epoch
Borderlands 2
BF4 (Can do on low settings)
Planetside 2

Programs:
OBS
Fraps
Dxtory
Sony vegas 11
Photoshop
Google Chrome (While gaming)
itunes (While gaming)
Spotify (While Gaming)


The build is based of AMD and Radeon things. Due to the fact they are less expensive than Intel and nVidia. Here is the build http://pcpartpicker.com/user/IAmMatt907/saved/2N4D
