Gaming/workstation build. Opinions?

This is going to be my first ever build, I took the modest gaming guide and tweaked it a little. What kind of performance could I expect out of this machine FPS-wise on games like BF4 1080p?

First of all, PCPartPicker guides are okay but aren't GREAT. That's what I think. Please don't ban me for this x_x

Don't expect 1080p BF4 on this though. If you removed the SSD and got a WD Blue/Black, you might be able to spend a bit more on the video card and get something like a 970.

Also, from what I've heard, BF4 only supports 4cores+. It won't run at 2 cores. Not sure about it but check the sys requirements.

Dual channel memory if you can. Only a bit more expensive but is worth much more.

Pretty sure his GPU can handle it if my dinky ol 660 can; would rather push that cash towards a better + unlocked CPU as to make use of cooler and get more power out of system

I've found a forum post on the BL forums with someone running it on an OC'd 3258 (like, OC'd to 4.0+ GHz which isn't to hard to do on that CPU apparently), can easily do at least 30FPS.

Though I believe it may run a lot better with more cores available

Better to get two sticks of 4 gigs of ram
