I need a gaming pc to play bf4 ultra @60fps at least and capable of upgrading to sli or crossfire in the future. Could u recommend me a build that could do so and where to get the parts from. And the total price including monitor should be £800 max preferably £700. I was thinking maybe a gtx 760 and an fx 6300; would that do the job or is that pushing it? I don't mind if things like AA would be at a slightly lower level than the max . Also if u recommend me a gtx 770 do u think its price would be lowered to £200 in the coming years?
P.S if u haven't realised by now, I'm from the U.K

BF4 will be optimized for AMD cards, compared to the 3rd that was optimized for Nvidia. So here's the build that I recommend you :

Thanks for the suggestion. I don't really need an optical drive since I already have one. But could you recommend me a 21-24 inch 1080p monitor

The Asus VS239H-P should be good for you.

I personally recommend an AMD Radeon 7770 graphics card. Just make sure you get that. I have that in my gaming PC, and Battlefield 4 runs 60-70 fps.
