Hello! I'm building a computer and i've got the RAM,Hardrive,PSU, and Case! However I need a Motherboard,GPU,and CPU. My budget is $380...but I can maybe raise it too $400! This is going to be a gaming computer. This is my first ever computer however i still need it to be good. All i need is the last three components. I don't mind if its AMD or Intel! Please include the statistics of how well these parts work together and what games I can handle on what settings. Also whether the parts bottleneck at all! Thank you! :)

You should be fine with this. You shouldn't encounter any bottlenecking.
You should get around 40 fps Avg on ultra settings on BF4, and probably around 40-45 on ultra on skyrim.

We kind of need to know what kind of ram, case and power supply you already have :-) That will give us the parameters needed to make good recommendations for you.
