Is this a good PC Build for 1080p Gaming?

I have wanted to build a PC for quite some time now and this is what I've come up with this build. Please let me know if this is good and if I should make any changes. I need to run CS:GO, GTA V and Dying Light smoothly.

  1. You'd be better suited with an i3/i5 and that graphics card than an Athlon.

    You can also drop to a 500W PSU and save some $ there.
  2. In Canada the AMD CPU's are alot cheaper. I only have like 900 dollar budget thats why i choose it.
  3. Yes, but they're also much weaker. I own an AMD system myself, but I would not build another at the current time until Zen comes out later this year.

    What does an i3-6100 run up that way?
  4. Will there be any bottlenecks if I go for the Intel i3-6100?

    An i3 is better than the 860k. Here is the TomsHardware cpu chart. I am also a canadian. http://goo.gl/drElsl
