Can this build run DayZ, CS:GO, TF2, BF?

I put together this build on pcpartpicker. I'm trying to get a budget gaming desktop build. Would this work?

  1. What is your budget, you can do better than 760 SLI.
  2. Im not sure about the price of two GTX 760 in sli but i would suggest to go with a newer GTX 970 instead. It's way more power efficient. As for the build i think it will run most games perfectly on high/ultra settings.
    Also if you are on a budget 8 Gb of RAM will be more than enough. May not be a bad idea to spend the money from the Ram on an i5 processor

    I never recommend SLI unless you have a great budget, like going for two GTX 980's for example. Other than that, performance with SLI/Crossfire cards are usually very inconsistent as they don't perform well in most modern games as they are optimised for console instead. Look at games like AC: Unity, Far Cry 4 and Battlefield 4. They are not good with SLI at all. It's possible in BF4 but very inconsistent too.

    For the price you can improve your processor, take that in mind first. I'd say you have the money for an i5-4690k, don't miss out on that. It's really important to have such a quality processor and I wouldn't miss out. Looking at your budget, something like this would be more ideal:

    If affordable as I said, don't miss out. This will perform really well.
