Tight budget (upto 450$ max) PC for Battlefield 4

pls suggest budget pc fr running bf3,bf4 at auto/medium/high 1600*900

right now m running on
phenom2 X2 550 be 3.1ghz
ati radeon 4650 1gb ddr2
transcend 2GB ddr2 800
biostar N68S motherboard
cooler master cabinet

but 1 thing i have observd so far is that all games which r using unreal engine 3 run smoothly at high settings at 1600*900....for eg. I finishd arkham city n dmc at high...even tried on ultra jus to check, still no noticeable lag

ok now coming to the heavy ones cryengine2 and frostbite2 i am able to run at 720p auto/medium settings at playable fps 23-30 , so only these have caused problems...no other engines or game.
need a machine to tackle these

i think unreal engine is the best engine out thr bcoz the visuals r just amazing and it doesn't even lag at all inspite of having an older machine

so upgrade has to be done keeping all this in mind !!

  1. If you can spend $650, do this build http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/budget-mini-itx-gaming-pc,3513.html

    Or else, i suggest to get the next gen console if ur budget is tight but u want decent graphics.

    For $450 budget, just get a PS4.
  3. Where are you purchasing, and what parts can you carry forward? You'll likely be able to recycle (at minimum) your HDD and case, as well as possibly your PSU if it's from a good brand and in good shape.
  4. What PSU are you using? Lets see if we can reuse that in your next build.
  5. ill be upgrading CPU , GPU,RAM,MOBO,PSU

    cabinet and hard disk will keep same seagate 500gb dts enuf for me

    I definitely wouldn't argue about the CPU, GPU, Mobo, or RAM, but your PSU may be a viable option going forward. What specific PSU do you have?
  8. psu is not that gr8 350watts iball power supply(iball is indian company) i got it as replacement fr coolermaster psu which came along with the cabinet but it broke down

    AH. Yes, I wouldn't recommend using that in your next build.

    That being the case, how does this look to you?

  10. i wont find crucial ballistix RAM in India.....i prefer kingston hyperX
  11. Should have been better if you told us that you're from India, you know.. pricing is different all over the world.

    450$ is about 27k Rs., right? Then this setup should fit all your needs:

    AMD 4.4 GHz AM3+ FX 6-Core Edition FX-6300
    Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3
    Corsair CMPSU-430CXV2UK
    Sapphire AMD/ATI Radeon HD 7790 1 GB GDDR5
    Kingston HyperX Blu DDR3 4 GB Seller: Onlinezone


    Amount Payable:
    Rs. 27355

    Oh, you're purchasing in India? My apologies, I had assumed you were in America or Canada, due to you posting the price in dollars. I'm afraid that my knowledge of Indian stores is quite limited. Is Corsair Vengeance an option?

    Edit: Madn3ss's build would likely be the best option for you.

    To the first question: No. To the second: Yes, but it's really rather bad, so I wouldn't recommend it.
  15. And AMD FX =/= AMD APUs, if that statement just rose in your mind.
