If you overclock your CPU you'll need to turn the frequency down on the memory to around 1600 anyways to keep it stable... so whats the point? I suggest cheap 8 BG G Skill 1600 memory.
2. I would highly recommend Asrock MB. Iv had 3 so far both for intel and AMD builds and all have been perfect and cheaper.
3. For max performance you need to build this rig around a powerful GPU. Its your number one priority component by far. I would recommend a GTX 770.

H80i 104

= 717 euro

I chose the FX 9370 bc you can easily OC to 5GH and keep it stable there. Plus BF4 supports multiple cores very well.(also why the i7 4770k is beast in this game due to hypertreading that the i5 doesn't have)

Id actually look for a 7870 over any R9 270x card. (its the SAME damn thing almost rebranded) just bought one for 140$ on newegg for my moms rig. LOL.

I would actually go with the GTX 770 if you find one cheap. Not sure what stores and deals you have over there. but saw a few around 300-330$ last week. Its really good for that $.

Yea but what after the mantle patch? the 270x should perform better after the patch maybe better than the gts 760 on bf4

Not much is known about what kind of performance boost that will be but keep in mind 7 series cards all benifit from manta as well.. so a 7870 is still the better option price/performance that a R9 270x. (get 2 in crossfire)

Check pricing on FX-8320 where you are, it's been very cheap here lately. Good value chip for this sort of thing.

Overlocking this?
