Is this a good pc build for my pc gaming needs? http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/2BPxl
what cpu and graphics card should I get. My budget is $600-$750. Can someone help me build one. I will be playing games like Minecraft, Just Cause 2, Battlefield 3 or 4, etc..
The lower end of my budget would be nice.

This is far better and within your budget. Battlefield 4 in particular needs more powerful hardware.

I would change the Motherboard to the Asus M5A99X EVO R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard instead, using the 990 chipset instead for the CPU and ensure no compatibility risk may get to him.

Becoming this:

The R2 versions of the Asus 970 boards have no compatibility issues with an FX 8320. That warning is for older 970 boards. Looks like OP forgot CPU and we forgot memory. :lol:
