Is this PC Build any good? I am mainly going to play Competetive Counter Strike Global Offensive, Battlefield 4, GTA 4, and Just Cause 2.

i already have a Hard Drive and a very good monitor :)  Thank you!

it is a good build overall. but there are some point you might want to know
#1 you need better quality PSU
#2 i believe it is better to use i5 OC for $1000 build
#3 go for at least 120GB ssd

Better i changed the GPU to 280X because it performs the same as the 770 but its cheaper
you won't really need an 2400 8gb ram
that PSU Sucks too
went with a better CPU and MOBO

No the I5 4690K beats the Whole FX family.

the simple answer is each FX "cores" are just extremely weak. Clock rate and core count are very, very small facets of the CPU performance formula. Architecture is the main ingredient, of which the FX series has a very weak one.

In almost all tasks, the strong, well-designed Haswell architecture of the 4670K can far outperform the Piledriver architecture of the 8350 in almost every way.

Wow, thank you for your quick reply and putting it in terms that I actually understand xD
So my %100 final build should be ( http://pcpartpicker.com/user/adam_subtractem/saved/GFQG... ) correct? Is there anything I should change? And btw I already have a HD and my monitor is very good!
(Would I get 200-300 fps in CSGO and good FPS in BF4?)

Thank you!

Correct
Ya you could Get a very HIGH FPS in CSGO but your eye won't notice it anyway when you're over 60 FPS And yes you can play BF4 on ULTRA smoothly with not problems at all
Have fun :)

Yes the 1600 is just perfect for gaming
you won't need a 2400Mhz ram
and if you want more Mhz you could OC your ram to 1866 but there won't be any difference
