This is currently my build for the PC.

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/CKgM23

My plan is basically to play GTA 5, and battle field 4 in HIGH detail. I have had some trouble regarding if I should get this Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 4GB WINDFORCE Video Card instead of the EVGA GeForce GTX 970 4GB Superclocked ACX 2.0 Video Card.

I want something that I can easily replace once next game generations increase, so I assume this is only regarding the video card I hope. Thank you.

Also, if this build can go cheaper without changing the CPU and keep the video card within the gtx 970 range would be nice. If not, thank you. :)

Edit: I decided to build another sort of similar build; http://pcpartpicker.com/p/bZbPhM

Do you think it's good, and a cheaper alternative? My main concern is replacing videos cards once next gen consoles shift to a stronger one, I don't want to re-build everything again. More like future proof or something like that.

http://gamingbolt.com/grand-theft-auto-5-pc-requirementsspecifications-may-have-been-leaked <These are most likely the specs required> I personally think that going with a 6 or even 8 core processor would be suitable for both games because there will be large amounts of players online, and the maps for both can be pretty large. But I am sure the 4690K will do just fine. I think that if you are looking for a quiet 970, go with the ASUS STRIX, otherwise choose the EVGA 970, they are more reliable. And the 970 is VERY future-proof

I heard a lot of people say that their MSI 970 TF has a coil whine. I think evga sc or asus strix would be a better choice. Also you might consider swithing that PSU for something cheaper. Like corsair cx series. Frankly, even 500 watts would be enough for that card and cpu even with overclock.
