Im looking into a new build that will be able handle pretty good FPS on high or highest settings. I have a strict budget of $1500USD, but after looking around I think I can get a really good build for that price. It will be used mostly for gaming, along with some school work and some normal internet use. I play games like BF4, Far Cry, Crysis, etc. Here is the list I have at the moment, any advice or comments would really help me. BTW I do plan on overclocking sometime in the future. Thanks!!
