It should run those games fine, but I would spend the extra $24 for the 8350 and get the extra 500mhz of speed and find a different motherboard. Biostar sucks. Look for an asrock or something instead. Way better quality.

Why did you override some? The CPU is $20 cheaper at 2 places and with that you could at least get the Asrock 970 extreme 4. I'd go for at least a 970 chipset board over a 960. 990fx is preferred but they are more expensive but if you plan to overclock you'd want a 990fx.

most of the time i override them because i would want it from Amazon, or that the one that was given would have a mail in rebate (which i don't understand at all) so i would just override it so that the mail in rebate wouldn't confuse me

Update: is this better? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1DIGG
