Now I'm thinking that when playing 64 players I dont need max setings@60fps, That would be reserved for 32players and under. For 64 players I only need high@40fps
Also I was thinking about this build, would it be enough?

I think your right on track with that gtx 760. Anything lower and you might not get the performance you want, with Mail in rebate thats about $ 216 which isnt bad!
However, I will say, you will need more than 4gb of ram, 8 should be a standard, and some games will not run with less than 8gb of ram. Consider these -->http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820144699&clickid=wNzxsMyKgUy-S0KTA4zuPyftUkTQeoQZTwQE2s0&iradid=97618&ircid=2106&irpid=79301&nm_mc=AFC-IR&cm_mmc=AFC-IR-_-na-_-na-_-na
WD has better warranty plans and overall less failure rate than Seagate but thats just my own experiences I am sure someone will comment on that, but otherwise thats fine.
500w is fine for a single GPU solution but there are better ones out there for that price http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182066
for 56~ and its 80+ Gold, Now i Know its only 450w but that is Guaranteed the proper output for that PSU, my friend went with a $20 Diablotek PSU 500W and is running it in his PC with a GTX660 but In reality it only outputs ~350w and is a ticking time bomb, DONT SKIMP ON PSU EVER.. just a really bad idea. 450w should be fine for a Single GPU solution. And the Next Gen 800 series Maxwell cards are Energy effiecient and dont require as much wattage, Heck the 750ti runs just off the PCI-E lane!! Thats why i suggested it earlier.
This silverstone Case costs $7 more and has usb 3.0 ports on the front and is just better quality over all. Should be easier to build and be better cooled than that one --->http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00A1ZU1I0/?tag=pcpapi-20

Its AMD, I dont hate amd I just Recommend Intel when applicable, the fx6300 is cheaper, and its hard to argue with that, when talking straight Price per performance.Edited by xelectroxwolfx - 4/10/14 at 6:59am
