Hi everyone I'm designing a new build for Battlefield 4 and just because It's time for an upgrade. I plan on running my games at 1920x1080 at max or close to max settings. Please let me know if this system will be adequate for my needs and any other suggestions you have. I'm looking to spend between 1200$ and 1400$. I still haven't decided if I want to build the thing or skip the work and order it from cyberpowerpc.com or something like that. I also don't need an HDD right now because I have a laptop with like 500GB of space left where I can put stuff on that. I plan on buying one in the future for the gaming build though. But for now 128GB SSD is all I need.

This is my first post so I am not sure how to post this info but here is the build:

OS: Windows 7 Professional/Home Premium SP1 64bit (OEM). Cant decide between home premium or professional. I'm thinking professional for a future proof 16GB of RAM upgrade.

RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8 GB ( 2 x 4 GB ) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800)

OD: Lite-On Super AllWrite 24X SATA DVD+/-RW Dual Layer Drive

SSD: Corsair Force Series GS Red 128GB 2.5-Inch (6Gb/s) SATA 3

PSU: Corsair Enthusiast Series 850-Watt 80 Plus Bronze Certified Power Supply

GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX770 SuperClocked with EVGA ACX Cooler, 2GB GDDR5

Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 - Mid Tower Computer Case with High Airflow . I have been thinking about a different case let me know if this is fine please.

CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K . Enough? or i7?

CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO

MoBo: MSI Computer Corp. Motherboard ATX DDR3 1333 LGA 1150

From the looks of the Battlefield 4 gameplay, I dont expect it to be much more demanding then Battlefield 3. Otherwise, the build is really nice! I wish I had the money to do that!

Best reguards,

Can you list the price of each component? Also, list the model of the motherboard.
About the windows professional thing, you won't be using 16gb of ram for games for a long time unless you plan to get into rendering or something.

That's a pretty decent built - for $1400 you can easily squeeze a mass storage drive in there.

I'd try something like this:

Better case, PSU, SSD, and you get a mass storage drive. GPU remains the same.
