1000$ Gaming pc build (Please give advice on my build)

Hello everyone so I'm currently wanting to build this pc listed below with the intent of adding an i7 and gtx 980 to it later this year. I know this obviously wont run games on max in the state it is and that's not a very big deal since I'm only really doing casual gaming (League and such) at the moment. Besides that I'm kind of wondering if this dual core cpu will be able to handle Any newer games if I get the time to play them? As a side note I am using 1080p.

I would like you to say your taught on how this would preform in it's current state And upgraded state. (What settings it would run smoothly) On Battlefield 4,Call of duty: Ghost's, Assassins creed: Black flag, Metro:LL and Bioshock infinite. This is quite a long list of games and I don't expect you to answer them all or any if you don't want to but any feedback is always nice.

Also is there an alternative for a better cpu same 1150 socket same brand?

I would like to thank in advance to anyone who contributes to this thread as I would like all the help I could get.

  1. Here's a great build for that budget:
    (The build is in US$)

    It will be able to run nearly every game (apart from poorly coded ones such as Watch Dogs) on max settings easily.
    SSD for OS and apps, HDD for storage and games too.
