So this is the third major revision to my part list, it started out with a 280x gpu for the build, but due to "bit/lite coin mining that card is now over 400$, after that i tried the 270x, but that seemed to be lacking power so i went for the nvidia gtx 770 which is at a stable 300$ price point, at the moment the total build is 1000$, but i would be very happy if the price could be lowered to 900-950$. This build is for gaming, mostly bf4 and crysis http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Ivan101/saved/3zU9 good luck and if anybody suggests the 6300 please mention bf4 performance

That video card is hitting the "too expensive for the performance" limiter a bit, personally I would recommend A GTX 660 Ti for $200 after the rebate instead of $320. The 660 is ranked 16th on the market instead of 7th, but it is still in that "Insanely Good" bracket, while saving you $120.

Also, are you VERY sure you want to go with Windows 8 instead of Windows 7, that's something to check with.

Could i have some pointers to bf4 660 ti benchmarks? all of my previous research was devoted to radeon cards

This seems to be a good benchmark to look at:

The average FPS on the benchmarker's build went from 40 to 31 changing from the 770 to the 660Ti, so it would be a 25% FPS drop for a 40% drop in price. What do you expect the framerate to be for your build with the 770? Take 25% off of that and see if its worth an extra $120.
