I'm completely new to the world of computer building and I wanted advice on a build I started last night. My goal is to play BF4 and be able to play it well but I would play other things as well. I would like input on what I have so far. Here is the build I've put together to this point;

I haven't selected a case or power supply yet. As far as cases go I was thinking of the Cooler Master HAF 912. My friend used it for his case and has told me good things about it and I generally saw it recommended to people.

I'd get 2x4GBs of RAM, an EVGA GPU and this HDD: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/seagate-internal-hard-drive-st2000dm001

This one has a combo with some power supplies which sounds like a good deal. I heard I should get at least a 3 GB graphics card for BF4 and I've also heard it doesn't matter. I heard it does first which is why I picked the card in the build up there.

Any thoughts on the 2 GB cards vs. the 3 or 4 ones?

Looking through the combo deals for the I7 4770 3.4 GHz processor, there is a combo with an Asus GeForce GTX 660 Ti 3GB Video Card. Its much cheaper than other cards I've considered and from what I understand, is a decent card by today's standards. Any thoughts?

If you are getting an NVIDIA card make sure you buy it at the 28th of this month since you will be getting 3 free games aswell.

Here's a revised build I've set up after getting some input.

This one actually has a case and a power supply present as well. I'm satisfied with the cost of it, as its a lot less than what I had anticipated.

That 660ti is a really solid buy at that price. Physically it's the same as a 760 so you're saving $20 and getting an extra gig of ram basically.

If you're spending the extra money on a Z87 board already I'd go all the way and get a 4770k even if you don't buy a cooler to go with it immediately.

Specifically for BF4, AMD is supposedly the way to go. Battlefield 4 will support AMD's new low level API called Mantle, which supposedly will bring great benefits to both CPUs and HD 7000 series and above
Super Mario Kart is the single best Mario Kart ever!
