Is this computer compatible with all it's parts, Is there any way to make it cheaper without hurting the performance?

Also I'm going for a gaming PC for next gen like Call of Duty: Ghosts and BattleField 4

Thanks -Kevin

Ghosts can be run on low end PCs, as it's hardly any different than any other CoD. BF4 is a bit more taxing than BF3, but what you have there is more than plenty for either.

Drop the Extreme4 M for an Extreme 3, get the Corsair 200r instead (for ATX support), and drop the i7 for a 4670k. You don't need HT for games, at all. That'll save you a little over 100 right there.
