    A Z97 MoBo for Intel build or 9xx series MoBo (preferably 990FX) for AMD build will be good.

    8GB memory for gaming is enough.

    Anything like GTX 760 or R9 280 or higher will be good for playing latest titles on ultra (though 280 and 760 would struggle on all settings maxed out).

    A case which fits everything in with good cable management and airflow is a great case for a build.
