Good build, but because BF4 is so CPU intensive, I recommend upgrading the motherboard. The Z87 from Asus http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-motherboard-z87plu... is a good choice.

Also: With the GTX 770 and the 4670K, you will be looking at over 60 fps on Battlefield 4.

OK..i replace the mobo because you need a Z87 or Z97 to be able to overclock your unlocked cpu
i replace the ram to a lower profile memory stick
and i change the gpu for a 4GDDR5 instead or 2GDDR5 because of the high demanding todays games and futur proof .
and the mobo i choosen for you support the new devils canyon intel cpu so more futur proof ; you can even wait the release of the new i5 4690K , it will be release soon

You should either get a Z97 motherboard and plan to overclock, or get the non-"K" version of the 4670 and save a few dollars.

According to your linked parts list, a 280x is cheaper and will easily outperform running on Mantle a 770 in BF4 . Just FYI.

For now, Mantle is not optimized for the 280X and will give stuttering issues.

Uh, where are you getting your information from? Watch any of my videos and find one that indicates stuttering. It will show up in the graph.

With the 770 he will be looking at over 60 fps on Battlefield 4 but with a 280x my Low FPS is 75 ;)

On max settings? A 280x is pretty good for BF4, especially with the Mantle support.
