So yeah... pretty sick computer right here. I know it comes in a shade over 1100 but I think its well worth it. This gaming computer has everything you will need to play and max out your games with the exception of GTA V I would assume. Maybe you have to turn down AA on battlefield as well but this will still offer 60fps at 1080p with pretty much every setting maxed. Do some overclocking as well (both the cpu and gpu can take pretty massive overclocks especially the gpu). If you wanted to halve the ssd capacity you could throw in a HDD for data but I think 500gb is plenty.

You can always reduce cost by getting a smaller ssd or cutting the cost of the OS if you already have it.

Guys what? I play Bf3 ultra on my 2gb Gddr5 730?? The 750Ti ( much better ) will do the same for Bf4 I'd say. And also, Do, Not, Get, Windows 8.

You're better off with this PSU.

If you are not overclocking then you can use the stock heatsink and same the money.

I would swap out the EVGA PSU for a Corsair, Antec, or Seasonic.

I have this mobo and really like it. Plus it would save you some more dough to go toward a better GPU.

What he listed was a Corsair but all the CX model are made by CWT which had a spotty past. I only trust Seasonic and Super Flower. As I learn more about OEMs I can add Delta to the top dogs.

Some Antec models are Seasonic/Delta made.

Huh. Didn't know that about Corsair's CX series. I have a GS series personally which has been great and have used CX series psu's in builds for friends and they have all worked fine but I'll keep that in mind.

They're ok for casual users but for extreme machines you need better. I have a CX430 in my i3 system and so far so good. It's in storage since I've built my i5 system.

You may find this list interesting.
