http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/user/meechybruv/saved/kfhmP6 For this build, I'm going to use it for mainly gaming
You COULD potentially drop intel for a AMD and hopefully upgrade that 290 to a 290x. That performance boost (I believe 5/10%) will hopefully override the Potential drop in performance during gaming (Which I think I read would be a few frames. Although I could be wrong)
Hmm, but what about CPU intensive games? Wouldn't the FPS be bad on those?
Depends on the game. I play civ 5 and keep 60 fps most if not all (except for occasional dips during after the game is over gameplay)
I'm looking at games like BF4, Minecraft (My little brother), Arma 2 / DayZ, and GTA V
You should be good for BF4, its overkill for the other games
Which is overkill, you mean I don't need one that strong? Or the the other games are too intensive for the FX.
That'd be fine. Besides, you'd get a boost in performance in BF4 because of Mantle
This, You'll be great in BF4 and the machine is more than enough for your other games.
