http://pcpartpicker.com/p/VRLwmG Need help on a $1000 gaming pc build. I was hoping to play games such as Rome II and Battlefield 4 on high settings. Please give my suggestions and tell me how you think about it. Also please help me pick out a wireless network adaptor.

http://pcpartpicker.com/part/tp-link-wireless-network-card-tlwn881nd This WNA will get the job done. I would reccomend a seagate Barracuda Hard Drive for the price but you should have no problem running BF4 and Rome II at Med to High Settings.

Should I get the GTX 760 2GB or the r9 270x 4GB? Does the GB make any difference when playing games?

I would go for the GTX 760, but since you have an AMD processor I would recommend going with the r9 270x for compatibility purposes. GB difference means a lot when it comes to the GPU because it allows the graphics card to buffer more content for really high resolution monitors. Graphics cards need a lot of memory to store all the textures, and rendered frames so the more ram the graphics card has the better it will perform at high resolution.

270x can't utilise 4gb of ram, get a 760, or a 280 on special.
