Yeah but state the name of the mobo preferably , also if gaming is your only intention then an intel i5 processor with a Z97 Motherboard should be your option.

Best solution

Nothing wrong with the system.
If you are asking 1080p it ofcourse a YES.
This system wont have any problem for few years.
Hope i answered you.

PSU? Please state brand, model, wattage and efficiency rating (none, bronze, silver or gold).

Other than that, nothing wrong with it. I can only suggest a cpu cooler if you're actually using the stock one, as AMD CPUs tend to get quite hot compared to Intel ones. I own a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO and it's pretty much awesome for what it costs. I actually have an Intel i5-4670, but the hyper should be AMD compatible might want to check that out by yourself, just in case.

Don't take as a given you can max out everything always depends on how good the game is pc optimized and AMD GPU optimized, in the end. As an example, I currently own an Asus R9 290x DCUII OC; on a 1080p resolution, Titanfall runs maxed out at averagely 100 fps, and Borderlands 2 does the same with physx set to medium (low would make it jump to at least double that value), but Watch_Dogs struggles at keeping over 60fps while running at medium-high settings...

And no, I won't pretend they won't "mess" it up, as they always do ;)
