  1. I'm rather certain you won't have to spend anywhere near that amount to get a computer to run BF4...even on max settings. I'll be back in a few minutes with a list of parts.

    With that much money, you can build pretty much whatever you want...try this...

    If that isn't enough power for you, grab another GTX 780 and run them in SLI. You could also go with radeon GPUs if you wanted. I think at E3 they were using two HD 7970s in Crossfire to run BF4. If I'm not mistaken, I think BF4 is going to be optimized for AMD GPUs as well. Not sure if it's true, but it was a rumour I heard a couple weeks ago.
  2. filling out the build template would help us out. right off the bat you dont need to spend more than 1800
  3. You could have a CPU made of cash with that budget. +1 to Deus
  4. +1 on the "too much money". However, here is a great build if you need to spend that much; it leaves room for any sort of multi-monitor setup that you will most certainly want to buy. It has an SB-E CPU, as well as two great GPUs. :) If you want, they can be exchanged with GTX 770s.

    the problems i have with this build would be

    -x79 performs worse in gaming due to weaker clock for clock performance
    -32gb of bling memory that costs almost double of what you would pay for 32gb of standard ram and the fact that it does nothing
    -crossfire doesnt work well when you factor in runt frames are a huge issue still and that you pay 100x2 dollars more for around 10-20 more mhz of overclocking
    -the case fans and the h220 fans are more than sufficent. completely does not need aftermarket fans. If you want the best, get noctuas.
