Wanting to buy a good spec gaming PC to run BF4 on as high settings as possible whilst maintaining 60 frames. I'm not going to be using the computer for much else other than gaming as I have a lap top for work related things so getting the best possible performance in game is my only priority.
I've never built a PC before have I'm not sure about the compatibility of the components or whether there are better parts to group together for better performance?
I'd really appreciate any feedback/recommendations.
I'm looking to spend £1500< and that includes all my peripherals.
Here's the what I've put together so far: CPU: Intel Core i5 4670K Quad Core Retail CPU RAM: Crucial 8GB (2x 4GB) Ballistix Tactical Memory GPU: Sapphire Dual-X AMD Radeon R9 280X OC 3GB GDDR5 Graphics Card SSD: Kingston Technology 120GB Solid State Drive 2.5-inch V300 SATA 3 with Adapter HDD: Samsung/Seagate 1TB 2.5 inch 5400RPM SATA II Hard Disk Drive PSU: XFX PRO750W Core Edition 80+ Bronze ATX 750 Energy Star Certified Power Supply FAN: Thermaltake Frio CPU Cooler MOBO: MSI Z87-GD65-GAMING ATX Motherboard
I'm not sure what case to get either as I'm not sure about space requirements or which cases have the best cooling.
Thanks in advance

The SeaSonic SSR-550RM runs around £75. It's a gold cert PSU so it's more efficient and it has two 8-pin PCIe cables to power even the most power hungry GPUs.
The XFX P1-650X-XXB9 is 650W and has four 8-pin cables so you could run two heavy draw GPUs if you wanted. It's around £70. Or you could go with the little brother, P1-550S-XXB9 for around £50. It's 550W and has one 6-pin and one 8-pin connector. That means dual-GPU's isn't an option, but you say cash and it's enough to run all but the beefiest GPUs.
Look for PSUs made by Antec, be quiet!, FSP Group, PC Power & Cooling, SeaSonic, Siverstone, and XFX. Check the PCIe connections and find one that has at least an 8-pin ( often 6+2-pin, ) and one 6-pin connector.
