Will this build be good enough for 'next gen' games?

Particularly games like Battlefield 4 and the upcoming Elder Scrolls Online.

This is my first build, done on very limited computer knowledge! My flatmate has built it for me but I haven't had the chance to test anything yet as I'm away for the next couple of weeks. Any info on the parts individual performances would be appreciated too.

Thanks in advance.

My son is very satisfied with the BF4 performance he gets, and his PC has only a 4-core AMD CPU and a GTX660 - so that build should be fine.

My BF4 performance is decent and I'm running a GTX660, I'm also running an FX-8320 CPU at the stock speed. Looking at the recommended specs for the game they recommend an FX-8350 but I get playable and stable rates with the current setup.

I reckon a 6 core chip should be fine.
