This is the build that I've made: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Vault/saved/3a8f

Few questions:

- Since I'll be playing on 1080p, should I get the GTX 760, GTX 770, or GTX 780? The most graphically-intensive game I play is Battlefield 4.
- I have absolutely no idea which motherboard I should get, please help me out.
- Are there any other problems with the build?

Thanks!
