Feel free to edit/change around parts, but keep it under $750.

I'm looking to play games like DayZ, so could you guys also tell me what my average FPS would be and on what setting?

    I wasnt aware that it came with a cooler, but awesome. That drops $25 off the price. Any other suggestions?

    That is rig is nice.You can play all games even DayZ at good frame rate as the gpu R9 280x is really a beast........But i would go with a "k" series processor.Get an i5 2500k or i5 3570k or i5 4670k or i5 4690k and any processor.......As you are getting a cpu cooler you can overclock your cpu as you may benefit with it.And coming to the GPU it is a beast and no words to say about it and 8gb ram is sufficient...It dont matter what brand you perfer in rams...And the PSU is a good one but i would go with a 600w 80+ bronze psu.As for the future upgrade...that's it.And if you prefer the changes i suggest,i would be very happy and good luck
