I wanted a AMD build since i havent been on terms with nvidia lately. i have nothing against intel, just prefer amd's FX line. I want this build for BF4, and any games utilizing cryengine 3 and above (star citizen). just wanted your opinions. i do plan on OC'ing my CPU.

The link below they did both a budget AMD and Intel build and they ran both Titanfall and BF4 on High I believe.
