I want to record games for youtube (Battlefield) so I know I need a higher end PC. Here is what I was looking at http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/partlist/
I wanted an Nvidia card for shadow play. I have fraps but it kills my current PC in FPS and I heard shadowplay only takes around 5 FPS so it sounded like a better option. If you could, could you recommend parts for a lower priced PC that would do fine with fraps? (AMD) Or another recording software? Or is the build I have fine?
Thanks. I have a 1080p monitor.

limit, your build doesn't include the price of the PSU... Also, your build doesn't allow overclocking, or support SLI for that high of a price tag. You can get a Z87 board supporting SLI for cheaper.

Here's one I did up for you Steel. Gives you room to add another 770 in there later. 2 4GB 770s destroys, especially for the price :)  And a single one will do amazing at 1080p already. Let me know what you think.

Thanks a lot! Looks great!
A couple questions about the the build though. What about this PSU cheaper because its on sale. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...
I don't feel comfortable with over clocking so I'm not 100% i'll OC, so is the liqid cooler necessary? Also is the K model of the processor necessary because of that? Would this case work? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... One more thing, when recording I heard you should record to another HDD so should I add a small one?
Thanks!

For the same price of the SeaSonic I listed, definitely go with the SeaSonic. It is one of, if not the, top brand of PSUs available.

Liquid cooling is not necessary to overclock, the cooler I listed here is great for simple overclocks. If you don't feel like overclocking, we can back off a little bit of money from that side and use it elsewhere. Yes, that is what the k denotes in the model number :) 

That case would definitely work :) 

You can, it would definitely help. Getting another 500GB HD could be perfect :)  or less, it's up to you.

You never really gave a budget, so I just went off of what the other guy had on here lol if you give me a hard number, I can definitely work with it. Just let me know!

I'm only 14 and have been saving money for a couple months so around $1,100. If I have to spend a little more to get much better performance I will. For the PSU I listed after the sale and mar its at $60 so would it be a better choice then? Also if a PSU went bad and broke other components would a warranty for the PSU cover that?
Thanks!

No, the warranty wouldn't. You don't want to skimp on the PSU, it is THE most important part in the computer.

Updated the build to get you under budget. The 760 by itself is a beast at 1080p, mine maxes everything, and the build still gives you the option to add a second 4GB 760 to destroy everything in SLI :)  Let me know how this looks:

Nice. I have a couple of questions. How does the 760 do FPS wise in BF4 high/ultra? Can I change the case? Also would it be a good idea to get an SSD?
Thanks!

SSDs are great, but you would have to cut something down, and I wouldn't do that to what's in here. You won't notice it really, but it would be a great upgrade in the future :) 

My 760 gets 50-60+ on Ultra at 1080p with AA. And in the future, if you get a second 760 for SLI, they will dominate everything lol
