After getting advice from my last post, on my other build, I decided to try and build something a little better by upgrading everything just a tad including my tower. Please look at the specs below and let me know if the components all look compatible, and let me know if its going to need more cooling and if I need to add or remove anything I selected. Again, my goal is to get as many FPS out of BF4 as possible. I'm placing my order on Monday, so I dont have much time to get this right. Thank you guys very much for helping me out. Please give opinions:
-AMD FX-8350 4GHz Eight-Core AM3+ Processor

-ANTEC KÜHLER H2O 620 ENCLOSED LIQUID COOLING SYSTEM

-Asus SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 Socket AM3+/ AMD 990FX/ DDR3/ Quad CrossFireX & Quad SLI/ SATA3&USB3.0/ A&GbE/ ATX Motherboard

-Zotac GTX770 4GB DDR5 2DVI/HDMI PCI-EXP Video Card

-8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1600MHz (PC3 12800) Dual Channel (HIGH PERFORMANCE)

-SEAGATE / WD 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB CACHE SATA 6.0Gb/s

-COOLER MASTER HAF 922 RC-922M-KKN3-GP ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

-SEASONIC 750 WATT EXTREME PERFORMANCE POWER SUPPLY

-Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit

Looks fine but do not see the need for the ram heat spreaders.

Thanks for your Help rolli, thats great news, I went to pcpartspicker a minute ago, and it says everythings compatible, but it had a note at the bottom that said the ASUS sabertooth mobo had front USB 3.0 ports and the HAF 922 Case doesnt have front USB slots, so i donno if thats a prob or not...Thanks again!

It is not a problem since the board has USB2 headers as well so you can connect the USB2 front panel on the Case to the board.

As noted in your other thread, the VANTEC DELUXE CASE COOLING SYSTEM is not really needed
Neither are the MEMORY HEAT SPREADERS
