Also, the games of choice I would like to play on this at high to ultra settings, are BF4, eventually Titanfall, Crysis games...so basically all of the amazing FPS out there.

  1. Motherboard uses dual channel memory so you should use a kit with (2 x 4GB) modules rather than a single (1 x 8GB) module.
  2. Ok - as far as the other build outs, how does this look?

    I swapped it out with these: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory

    You should be using an SSD not a standard HDD. You can always use a standard for videos, pictures, etc. But the OS and the games should all be on an internal SSD. Hope this helps :)
