Hello, I am helping my friend choose parts for his pc, this is what we have come up with so far. How well do you think this build will run recent games such as battlefield 4 and games releasing at towards the end of this year?
Thanks in advance!

It will work well and will definitely be capable of playing this year's games. Changed PSU, RAM and MOBO. The PSU is a better one, RAM is faster and MOBO is pretty much the same just cheaper.
