Also guys would you say the AMD options is the best bang for your buck i could get? i decided on the ASUS board due to the SLi/Xfire support incase i go dual GPu later and the fact that ASUS make great boards. Please leave any suggestions to better options

Ya. The 212 will limit your OC to 4.5ghz, but overall you will find you will be gpu limited.

That gpu has a bottleneck even with the cpu at 4.5ghz unless you use 1080p.

Buy a fx 6300+970 mobo or a i3 4130 with h81

My CPu performs very similarly to an FX 4300 at stock speeds and Overclocked surpasses it. i know i have the bottleneck but its not huge.

EDIT: just saw you mentioned 1080p and that is the res i use but i still get around 80% GPU usage in Bf4. all other games run perfect though

If you are talking bang for your buck the octacores are hard to beat, especially overclocked.
