Just something else to consider. You can drop the GPU to the gtx770 and get an SSD, that's what I did with about the same budget, but the truth is, SSDs don't help with FPS, just load times. I love my SSD though, and wouldn't want a system without it. It'll depend on what games you are playing and at what resolution, but I personally wouldn't go less than a gtx 770 / R9 280X.

would this system run bf4 on high/ultra settings, and other games like skyrim on high settings?

Have you considered putting it together yourself? It's not for everyone, but if you are the type of person who enjoys putting together lego sets, you can build a computer. There are a lot of really good tutorials online.

Here is one as an example. It's a few years old, but nothing has changed.

Oh, your budget is $1100 Canadian? Because the system I linked above comes out over your budget when switched to canadian dollars.

If your budget is $1100 canadian, just let me know and I'll see what I can put together.

That system I just linked above is only $23 over budget. If you want to go cheaper, personally I'd drop the cpu to a non-overclockable cpu and an H97 motherboard. Something like the below system.

Both systems I have linked will play the games you listed on ultra settings.

Here we go. Did some moving around and you can have an SSD and the R9 290 both, plus an overclockable CPU.

One thing to change in your system above.

You have the i5-4690 (non 'K') with a Z97 motherboard. That is a non-overclockable cpu with a motherboard for overclocking. They will work together but it's not really a suggested pairing.

The pairings I'd suggest are one of the two below:

If you plan to overclock
i5-4690K with a Z97 motherboard plus the hyper 212 evo cpu cooler

OR
if you don't plan to overclock
i5-4690 with an H97 motherboard and you won't need the cpu cooler.
