If you are not averse to swithing to a Intel build. > http://au.pcpartpicker.com/p/yfFtNG

Would give better overall performance.

PCIe 3.0 x16, 

Access to integrated graphics on the CPU.

M.2 (Gen2 x2/SATA)   Next generation SSD support.  + more 

 

Edit.

See reply #15 for GPU.

Battlefield 4 is a rather intensive game, arguably quite resource intensive. I'm not too good with AMD and not sure how they stack up, so I can't really help you there. I know Battlefield 4 needs quite a lot of juice though. As far as I know, the Playstation 4 (just an example) runs on medium and some low settings at (it's said anyway) a stable 60fps.

Ultra you're gonna be looking at a little bit of power. Recommended specifications for the game itself is a quad-core processor, 8GB memory, 2GB video memory.

Apparently the game is said to run slightly better with AMD hardware.

Just looking at your specs, seems like you'll be able to run on ultra pretty smoothly. If you really wanted to invest further, I'd probably recommend going for a SSD, not that much storage, just to have your OS etc on for quick boots and some other general activities. It's a noticeable difference, and not too expensive since you're not wanting to dish out on a SSD for all your data, just your OS and perhaps a few other things.

Apparently it's meant to be optimised for AMD (Battlefield 4 specifically). I'd prefer an Intel CPU and NVIDIA GPU personally, but AMD definitely isn't bad for the price or quality.

General opinion is the Intel gives better game performance.   In many benchmarks, (actual gaming) Intel beats AMD in 7/8 out of 10 games tested, extra fps gain is 2/5.

AS well as the points in reply #16, there will be no further CPUs released for that that AMD socket.

 

Regards to the SSD mentioned by Robust.   I would forgo using the current generations of SSD for a Boot drive and look later to a m.2 unit when the prices drop, that is another reason for going the Intel path.
