First Gaming PC Build Components

Hey guys I'm building my first gaming PC, and am planning to order the following components.
From your experience, will they all work together okay and be sufficient for playing battlefield 4, cod ghosts, and some other similar games while recording them live for a youtube channel?

Any advice for the build or things to be careful of?

Thanks in advance!

    This build has one error.

    You're pairing an unlocked CPU with a motherboard meant for locked CPUs.

    Switch it to a Z87 (would recommend ASUS Maximus VI Hero) board and you're good to go.

    Ok, thanks for catching that. Would there be a cheaper option?

    Basing the pricing around the board you originally selected, you could go with either the MSI Z87-G43 for around $105, or the ASRock Z87 Extreme4 for roughly $117.
