third (hopefully last) revision to my first-ever gaming rig

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

  1. This build is very good with absolutely no mistake
  2. 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:
    http://gamegpu.ru/images/remote/http--www.gamegpu.ru-images-stories-Test_GPU-Action-Battlefield_4-test-2560.jpg
    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.
