Solved Building BF4 Gaming PC for $600-700 Tags: Battlefield Computers Build Systems Last response: September 10, 2013 6:35 AM in Systems Share InstantRegret September 9, 2013 6:42:22 PM I just built my own computer for Battlefield 4, and have a friend of mine who wants to do the same. While I shelled out $1000 for my build, he doesn't have as much to spend on the computer. I'm looking for a build that could average 60 fps at 1080p on Medium to High settings, at around $600-700. If the OS could be included in the build, that would be nice, I know when I first saw how much that was going to run me, my heart sank.
