Hello! I have a chieftec dragon da-01bd-u-op full tower and I really need help getting good, cheap, but powerful parts that can at least bring out 40-50 fps on battlefield 4 ultra (no effects) and under 600 dollars :)  thanks!

Also my friend said I should get all my 4 80mm fan slots (2 back, 2 front) to be pull fans, but idk if that is right, so I come to you my fellow computer junkies for conformation.

Also I really want to build off of amd 3+ Motherboard with a phenom ii x4, 32gb dual channel, and that has SLI or crossfirex support.

I want at least 8 gb of 1600mhz ram.

Atx is most recommended, but I will accept a micro atx build.

Nividia cards are also what I want.

So what parts do you need exactly?

Everything but the case?

No, the back fans should be exhaust as the CPU is right there throwing off heat. Front and side fans are always intake and back and top fans are exhaust since heat rises.

Thanks man! Also the parts say there might be a issue, should I pay attention to that or is it ok?

The issue if you might have to update the mobo bios, but I haven't heard of any complaints yet as I've recommended similar builds many times. Just make sure you have the newest BIOS for the board ready to be installed before you build the new system just in case you run into a problem. If you don't mind spending a little more you can get a higher chip set so you won't have to worry about it.
