Processor: i5 3570k--
Motherboard: ASUS M5A99FX-
Graphics Card:AMD Radeon 7970
Ram:8gb DDR3
Power: Logisys Corp. 550W
Case: ZALMAN Z9
I've been looking to build a good PC for quite a while, and I think I have all the parts. I want to run BF4 at ultra with about 40 fps. Please tell me if I should change parts out. I already have OS and accessories. Also, wondering if I should overclock, but would it require better cooling

unfortunately that mobo is not compatible with the CPU, your CPU is from intel and mobo is for AMD CPU's. gfx card is good. PSU seems crap, go with a corsair CX500, much better. and if your gonna OC your gonna need good cooling. but with a cheap cooler like CM hyper 212 evo, you can reach 4.4-4.5Ghz with temps under 80C.

Sadly, the processor and motherboard are not compatible. The i5-3570K is a lga1155 processor while the Asus M5A99FX is a AM3+ motherboard. The sockets are completely incompatible.

Keep the processer! Just change the Motherboard the one i recommend!
Ya psu,i recommend getting 650 watt corsair! Overclocking later on? 750 should be really good!
EDIT:Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120mm PWM Fan for cooling !

the mobo ThatTechGuyIn recommended is quite good. asrock Z77 extreme 3 or gigabyte Z77X-UD3H are also good boards.
