Is there any way to check the performance of the parts I picked out? I don't have the PC built and I don't plan on buying the parts soon, I would just like to know if it would perform on the games that I want to play before I buy. I would like to play games like Battlefield 4, DayZ, and similar newer games. Thanks. Here are the parts:

Hello, that's a good gaming build. High-Ultra on FHD. You don't need an af cooler with a locked CPU, so you can save some bucks there and instead get a better locked CPU:

Everything else looks fine to me, but you should upgrade your PSU, that's not the best one (wattage wise to go with R9 280X, get atleast a 550W one).

Performance wise, your selection, 50+ FPS on Ultra, 65+ FPS on high on any latest title on FHD. Add a couple of FPS if you go with my suggestion, as that CPU is really powerful, and will help in the future where more raw CPU clock speed is required.

Fair enough. Btw, that CPU you chose (and the one I suggested) can't OC, you need a 'K' version CPU to OC, 4460 and 4690 are locked. And yes you should definately get a better PSU. Good overall gaming build I'd say.

Thanks, I had the cooler if I planned on overclocking, which I most likely won't be doing. I think i'm going to stick with the current processor I have and put the extra money I will have from removing the cooler towards a new PSU. Thanks.
