Hi everyone i plan on building my first computer soon and would like some feedback. If someone could tell me if there is any compatibility isues with the parts or if i should switch out some parts that would be awesome. I would like the computer to run games like battlefield 4 on mid settings can it accomplish this?

Since you have a graphics card, you could get a Athlon II x4 750K or 760K instead.

Also you should be looking at an FM2+ motherboard to maintain future upgrade ability.

The thing is im getting the cpu and motherboard as a combo on newegg for $170 which save like $30 so i think it is still a better deal for the AMD A8-6600K although the 760k does look like a good deal

Sorry Sheld0r, you should get the fx cpu instead of A series.
And I have the list for you, I change a lot of your components, 1) case, you need it can bottom mounted PSU for better air flow. 2) GPU, 3) PSU the Ultra is the not good one.

I dont know much about computers but from what i have read wouldn't the A series be better because not that much can take advantage of a 6 core so it would be better for the 3.9gh instead of the 3.5gh and save like $40 or does the motherboard i have picked out shit?

A8-6600k vs fx 6300 http://www.cpu-world.com/Compare/301/AMD_A8-Series_A8-6...

500W is more than enough, but not for the ultra one.
