Is this a good gaming pc?
Want to play bf4 at 1920x1080p
I prefer Nvidia, because you get three games and you'll have G-symc and shadowplay.
I will probably overclock my pc in a few years.
Thanks for the advice!

I'm not sure on the quality of Be Quiet CPU coolers, so I cannot comment on that. But most if not all CPU coolers come with thermal paste, so there's no need to buy extra.

But other than that, it looks good.

I live in the Netherlands and all fora are saying this is a really nice CPU cooler.
The termal paste is better than the one that comes with the CPU cooler.

would change case and psu.

cooler master cm 690 III is out. nanoxia deep silence,fractal r4,nzxt 530 also good cases.
860w platinum is overkill, ~750w gold is plenty
would change motherboard to gigabyte or asus.
extra thermal paste not needed

r9 290/ r9 280x for a cheaper alternative

MSI, Gigabyte, etc... are ok brands
IF you really want the "premium" components go with Asus, I've literally never seen anyone out do them in build quality; in note they simply make bad to the bone hardware... that you pay a little higher prices for
