For 1000 pounds including a 780, I think you hit the nail on the head there with that, great build. And you should expect around 60 fps average would be my guess.

If your game of choice is BF4, then I'd suggest an R9 290 instead of the GTX 780, taking advantage that in the UK the prices haven't skyrocketed, specifically this one:

For £50 less you should expect better performance.

Thanks everyone. I really do love the toms hardware community everyone is so helpful and kind haha. Anyway back on topic I was actually considering a non reference r9 290 but the problem is I haven't really watched/read enough reviews yet on the new non reference cards and I want to build the system ASAP so I am happy spending the extra for the 780 because I know it's a smooth and refined card. I may give it a few weeks and see if some video reviews come through from youtube channels like newegg or tech of tommorow.

Love that build. The non reference R9 290s are beasts by the way!
