Hey, I will have up to $2000 to spend on this and this is what I've come up with for my first build. I will be playing games such as Battlefield 4, Titanfall, Assassin's Creed 4, etc. I was wondering what you thought of my build plan and what I could improve upon. Remember $2000 limit.
Thanks! http://pcpartpicker.com/user/jamisan601/saved/3ScW
