I'm really looking forward to buy and build my very first gaming pc however can you give some suggestions or opinions on the build. I would like to play games such as BF4 or Far cry 4 on full settings. Is this build enough to play these games? Cheers.

If your focus is gaming then you can actually step the processor down to an I5-4670k since the I7 shows only the slightest improvement. Also you only really need 8gb of memory, 2x4gb gives you scalability in future and is more than enough for gaming.

The only exception to the above is if you plan to do a lot of video rendering, multiboxing or things of that nature.

With the money you save you could throw in an SSD and some other fun stuff.
