First gaming PC on a budget. Need thoughts please.

Here is my current build.

I'm on a budget and looking to spend around $600 after rebates. My goal for this pc is to be able to play BF4 on ultra at or around 60fps.

I posted this build on reddit but didn't get much feedback and was told it might have problems bottlenecking? I'm having a hard time understanding what makes a good gaming cpu and GPU.

Any thoughts suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Personally, I would go with a 280x for a GPU. They should be about the same price. Also, 4gb on a GPU isn't needed unless you're gonna be using dual monitors and 1440p gaming (I believe. someone else should verify that).

You have different options here.

I think you could go with a fx 6300 for the CPU and 280x for the GPU, or you might be able to get a 280x right now if they're still at $200.

Awesome thanks for the info.

I was looking at the 6300 first. And I wasn't sure if 4gb was better for 100k games.

Thenks again
