    So my disposable income just increased and I'm thinking of building a new PC to replace the somewhat outdated C2Q GTX285 PC mentioned in this thread:

    CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core
    CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
    Motherboard: ASRock 970 EXTREME4
    Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600
    Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM
    Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 970 4GB ACX

    Total cost is approximately $700

    Going to use the same case and 750W PSU from my previous desktop.

    I'm looking to play demanding first-person shooters (Battlefield, CoD) at graphics better than the PS4. Resolution of my monitor is 1080p. Is this build balanced well and at a good price-performance ratio?

    It should be sufficient for your needs. Personally I don't like AMD procs, but let's not be biased here.

    the 6300 is a decent enough chip. Perhaps not bought for its out of the box performance, but it does easily overclock a fair ways even on a standard cooler. Its a very cool running chip! The GTX970 is probably the best value for money card that I have seen since the 8800GT many years ago!

    Pretty crappy build for $700 bux. At $700, you can get an i7, a very nice i5 setup.
