It's been a while since I've gamed with 2GB of video memory, I'm not sure how BF4 would handle it but that my cause some screen tearing as there may not be enough ram to load the whole scene in to memory, unless its turned way down? I'm no expert though, I'm curious what other feel about this particular scenario.

I run bf4 and bf1 just fine with my 770 2gb (although i still wish i bought the 4g).

The only thing I would worry about is that 750w power supply is close to max now, if you sli you may need to replace the power supply too (might be wrong but my 750 is nearly maxed with just one card).

It's a better setup than mine you will be able to play bf4 and bf1 but not near max settings, prolly texture/shadows ultra, everything else medium, draw distance max, AA minimum. There's definitely room for improvement in the future, but overall it will game and game well

It also depends on your resolution, quality, and frame rate expectations. Especially since you can overclock that 4350 to probably 4.7GHz or more.

BlackBartTX mentioned SLI. I would advise against SLI on a low end GPU. It is not worth spending that much money on a 2nd card. It is almost always better to buy ONE more powerful card for the same price than buying TWO less powerful cards for SLI. Yes, I know I have SLI, but I wouldnt recommend it to others. The issue will be driver and game support. Certain games or drivers won't support SLI or the SLI wont scale very well. This means you will be limited to 1 GPU worth of processing power even though you have 2 GPUs. So if you had a SINGLE more powerful card, you will be limited to the entire power.

Its a great setup. You have all the basics covered. Install your operating system and games on the SSD. It will be awesome.

XFX RX480 GTR is really good value atm, at least in aus, check out jayz's review below.
