2 things you may want to do the 8 gig of ram will run slower in single channel you need to do 2 x 4 = 8 for dual channel also you should drop the 6100 its older gen cpu and much slower then the 6300 or 6350 fx then I would say your set to go.

Get this Corsair TX650 instead of the Antec 500W:

It's actually $1 less and it will give you a lot more options later if you want to upgrade the video card.

With 2x4GB and FX6300 you should be able to run ultra at 1920x1080. But your FPS's are probably in the 30-40fps range.
BF4 1920x1080 Ultra

You have some nice parts and then some bad ones. As rvilkman pointed out, you should go with 2 x 4GB modules and an FX6300. I think you should avoid the 6100.

I think High is more appropriate for the 660 just for stable frames in the 60s.

What is your budget?

That will leave room for your case and OS. If you like the 660, that's an easy change.

BF4 is one of the games that supports AMD's upcoming Mantle API, which will improve performance in the games which use it. Which is why I switched from GTX 660 to Radeon R9 270.
6100 is a bulldozer IIRC, which had a lot of problems. Piledriver (6300) is it's successor, and much better.
Buying two Memory sticks of the exact same kind allows them to run in Dual Channel when placed in the correct slots, which makes them run slightly faster.
AMD stock coolers come with thermal paste pre-applied.
The motherboard you had is bleh, switched to a better one, also has more room.
Switched the HDD to a larger sized Seagate.
Switched to a better yet cheaper power supply.
