Thanks for the build, i was just wondering what CPU and GPU to go with, (Intel or AMD) I am going to be doing a lot of gaming, video editing, photoshop, cinema 4d work and stuff like that what would you recommend for my budget?

because of the given budget, you cant afford intel build
i believe fx 6 cores can perform slightly below intel i5 in both games and pro software

what about putting a bit more into the build and getting an AMD AM3+ x8 FX-8320 3.5Ghz/8Core or AMD AM3+ x8 FX-8350 4.0Ghz/8Core/16M/125W ?? Would that effect the performance enough to make a noticeable difference?

yes, 8320 will make a difference in pro software, not in games

Do you think the system will be able to tun modern games such as battlefield 4 on high-ultra settings on 1080p?

definitely not ultra, you can expect it to run BF4 at med-high

Would overclocking the CPU and GPU make much of a difference in running high end games?
