I need some general advice and warnings about this build. Unlike some others who post on this forum thread I actually am considering building this very build. I need to know what temp. to expect, if it will run 60+ at medium at 1080p, would I have to upgrade something soon in order to allow future upgrades, stuff like that. I need info. on any parts that may not be a good buy. I already have a monitor, mouse, and keyboard, and windows has been included. If you have any advice or suggestions please let me know and if you have a build that also includes windows and is better than this build for the same price please post a link to it.

http://pcpartpicker.com/user/KingGoldZX/saved/VKzkcf I think you may like this buid better its cheaper than what it was before and it has some upgrades and changed parts, I too am building a gaming pc with a higher budget than yours, but this is in the $600 price mark, there are a lot of vids giving a pretty strong $500 build, like Austen Evens Photon build https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7MOAN005Fvw , I can help more if you have any questions.

What type of frame rate would I be looking at in bf4 at 1080p at medium settings?

Put together a build for you, if you plan on playing battlefield games i strongly suggest a radeon card, the 260x is equal to the 750 performance but has an extra 1gb of vram and also has mantle for bf4 optimized fps, the windows 8.1 also helps with fps in games you should be able to play on high settings with bf4 and ultra on bf3.

Ok, I will take this build into consideration. But just for fun, what frame rate would I be looking at when playing 1080p at medium with both this build and the one I had in mine?

You should be able to play on ultra without 4x msaa and SSAO with stable fps of 30-50ish maybe even more with windows 8.1, but on high it will run max no problem

Im not too sure about the i3 but for your budget I would go with a 6300
