How does my build look?

Here's my build. http:// (I already have the case, optical drive, and all the peripherals.)

I would just like to know if I can run Battlefield 4, Garry's Mod, Minecraft, COD, all while recording at a solid 60-120 fps for youtube. (I probably won't record BF4 and COD.)

Some questions.

1. Do I have a bottleneck?

2. Do I have any incompatibilities?

3. Anything I can upgrade for a small amount of money? I have a small amount of money left so I could upgrade one or two things.

More about : build

hard to tell tbh, the only real thing i can see is about 100 dollars more for a gtx 770, as the 760 would be the weakest thing in the system (not that a 760 is weak though really)

but apart from that theres no bottleneck or incompatibilities

Thanks for the quick response, and thanks for the advise. One more question, though. My case came with a 480w PSU, could I use that for the time being to save some money so I could upgrade my GPU, then get a better PSU later?

480w will be enough for that system if you go with the gtx 770, not by much but it will be fine.

If I stuck with the 760 could I use the 480w PSU until I upgrade to the 770?

you can run a gtx 770 on a 480w psu no problems with that build

if you dont plan on overclocking, dont get the z87 motherboard. an h87 is the same thing, but without the overclocking capability. also, power supplies that come with cases are usually terrible, you will need to check the sticker on it to make sure it can supply enough amps. i would suggest buying a new psu when you get the graphics card. whats your case?
