Not sure how this build sounds but i'm looking to spend around 700 dollars. Want to be able to play Titanfall or bf4 on max settings. Let me know your opinions or suggestions

And yeah, I changed the case, the case you picked doesn't seem to have a lot of cable management options.

Thanks for the input. Would you suggest anything else that might make the gaming quality or anything better?
