Pretty much brand new to PC building and I need you to rate this. I used PC Part Picker. My max is basically $1500 (give or take). I'm using AMD (I really like their processors, the 8 cores for future-proofing) and I really like Nvidia (I just like them. My stepdad has a 660 TI that is pretty fast). Anyways here it is:

Btw, at the bottom I added the NZXT Sentry LX (about $50). Thanks for any help guys!

EDIT: Lol sorry about the link I didn't even realize that.

use the "permalink" on the website, this particular link takes whoever opens it to their own list, or a new pcpartpicker page

Sorry, but we can't see your build. The link you posted goes directly to pcpartpicker.com list, not to your own build.

changed some stuff around, FX 8350 is the same exact CPU chip as the FX 8320, so get that instead since you're getting liquid cooling anyway, overclock it and there's no difference besides the 40 dollars you're not wasting.

switched out the Asus board, the Asus only has a 6+2 power design so it's overclock ability will suffer compared to the Gigabyte 990FX, which was tested to be the best overclocker out of a batch of standard 990FX motherboards.

changed your GPU, yours was a reference style blower cooler, which I'm not a fan of, this Gigabyte one is cheaper (the deal doesn't last long though, the next cheapest price from amazon is still worth it), has an excellent 3 fan windforce cooler, and comes factory overclocked.

so all in all, similar parts but saved you around 70 bucks with no difference in performance (GPU will actually perform a bit better on account of the factory overclock)

Also, what kind of FPS would you guys expect on Battlefield 4 and Crysis? (Each individually) And maybe also how future proof is this? Thanks again.

If you're just running basic 1920x1080 you should easily be hitting 60FPS (higher the human eye cant detect anyway) on that build. Also to future proof it I would add a bigger PSU so that you could SLI in the future.

a GTX 780 can max out BF4 with 60+ FPS, as for Crysis 3, you should be able to max it out with about 40+FPS I believe
