I am looking to build a gaming PC on a ever shrinking budget. Will this play bf3/bf4/ arma 2/3 on relatively high settings?

More about : kind performance

Any way to up the performance at a low-ish price

Well, you'd be looking at 40fps on ultra at 1600x900, or 25fps at 1080p on BF3. Arma 2 is pretty much the same, but it responds harsher on higher resolutions.

Why not go with fx 6300, then upgrade you GPU since it's a gaming build. That would save you about 80euros.

Not really dude, I mean, Its got pretty respectable parts for the job, the true weakpoint is the GPU, and theres not much to be done... you get what you pay for in that area. Your next noticeable improvement would be around another £30-40 up the price scale.

Or what adimeister said, I completely forgot AMD for a moment there... lmao.

Yessir! Budget = AMD, rich as fu**. hahaha But make no mistake about AMD chips, they are also fast.

@OP: You can also get an 8gb kit bro.

Get the fx6300, and an am3 mobo with 970 chipset. Then upgrade your ram to 8g 2x4gb 1600mhz, then get the 7850. Price would be the same with your current i5 build.

+1 except the GTX650Ti is even better value & I don't know what the AM3+ ITX motherboard selection is like. You could save more money making it around m-ATX instead of ITX and not risk the cooling problems.

hahaha Why did you go for the 8300? It's almost the same price as the i5, I suggest the fx 6350 bro. And whoah that 650ti is cheap!! Looking good. :)  But you can downgrade to 6350 and get a more powerful card like the 760. :D  Take note, the 6350 is perfect for gaming, the 8350 is an overkill for gaming. It's more suitable for the video editors and the likes.

How much is the GTX 760 there? Should be close to 220 euros right? The money you saved up for the fx 6300, you can upgrade your GPU with it or add a litte more. :)
