No, your graphics card is probably going up to a medium with some things turned on. Get a GTX 760 and make your rig Intel, cause that can upgrade better and FX isn't going to be updated anymore.

Get an i7-4770k, z87 board, and a GTX 770 or above, then you'll be ready to play current (and future) next-gen games on ultra settings.

You spend too much on useless parts ...
Even a 1200$ build will be enough .
No need for a 295x2 ...
The cooler master hyper 212 evo isn't even enough for that processor if you're gonna overclock .
This build is made to be upgraded when you can :

Wow, a lot of people on here seem to be not sure what ultra on modern games will require. You will not need an i7 with a 770. If you get an i5 4670 or an 8 core amd FX you will be fine running modern games and games for the next 5 or so years on ultra settings. For the graphics card, a 660 can run modern games on ultra settings, mine does. For extra future proofing though, a 760 would be a good budget conscious choice that would run games on ultra for the next 2 to 2.5 years. A 770 would last you even longer probably about 3 to 3.5 years. Keep in mind though, that when you hit that 2 year mark with a 760, that simply means that games that come out at that point may require you to do a mix of ultra and high settings, it won't be like 2 years and then you have to play on low settings. By the time a 770 would not be doing good on ultra, it will have endured alot of use and will need to be replaced anyway just because it is tired and worn out. So anything beyond a 770 is just for bragging rights.

A lot of times on these forums, people like to think that if you are not getting over 70fps on ultra, it is time to upgrade. Truth is, you are not going to notice a difference between a constant 45fps and a constant 60fps. Anyone who says there eyes can easily detect the difference needs to doubted on their opinions.

The second build is a good one for him, but Ripjaws X memory is cheaper and in my opinion better: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I completly agree . An i3-4340 and a 660 will be enough for modern games even though it's only a dual core proccessor .
But I prefer not to get i3's for gaming and save my money for an i5 or simply get an amd fx procc'

actually the i3 will be limited in the near future and will definitely supply a bottleneck. if he goes with an r9 280x or higher that bottleneck will be relieved a bit by mantle for some games, but really you should just get a processor with better multicore performance since the next gen seems to be focusing on quad core or above. the 6300 would be the bare minimum, and the mid i5's or the 8120/8350 fx's would be the better ways to go.... if you really have the money you could go for an i7, but that one is still ridiculous in price/performance even considering the cores lol.

as for the gpu if you want current gen releases i'd say stick with amd for mantle/trueaudio(an overlooked but pretty awesome feature). unfortunately that means upgrading all the way up to at least a 290. if that doesnt strike you as worth it you might as well consider older gen stuff and catch one of the awesome deals that float around on 7870s/7970s and 680s every once in awhile since the middle range of the current gen is pretty much just rebranding if i remember right. if you are willing to hemorrhage money you could go with an 295x but if you do that you'd need pci-3.0 x16 slots. the 290/290x function fine on x8/2.0 x16, but the 295 will not function to it's full extent without 3.0x16.

as for the rest. 8gb is fine for now so long as you have some slots open on your mobo for an upgrade. i think 16gb should be becoming a standard in the nearish future, and for the storage you should really consider a SSD they increase performance quite a bit, and they are much more affordable now than they used to be. you dont need a huge one, about 240GB will suite fine as long as you dont want 10 games on it at any given time.
