This is EAs recommended system reqs:

OS
Windows 8 64-Bit

PROCESSOR
AMD Six-C0re CPU
Intel Quad-Core CPU

MEMORY
8 GB

GRAPHICS CARD
AMD Radeon 7870
Nvidia Geforce GT 660

GRAPHICS MEMORY
3 GB

HARD DRIVE
30 GB


This is my build:

OS: Windows 8 64-Bit
CPU: Intel Core i5-3470 (with packaged cooling only)
GPU: OverClocked (1,150MHz) Gigabyte GTX 760 GDDR5- (2GB)
PSU: Corsair 500Watts with 80 Plus
RAM: 8 GB Corsair Vengeance Blue
Motherboard: Asus P8-H77-I
Memory: 500GB Western Digital Caviar Blue
Case: Bitfenix Prodigy (with 2 installed fans)

Currently I run BF3 at 1080p with 4xAA on Ultra for all settings at 70-90fps.

Do you think I will be able to run BF4 on Ultra at at least 60fps considering that Nvidia cards run EA games better than ATI Radeon?

Or do I need to return my GTX 760 2GB and buy a GTX 760 4GB to accommodate the 3GB graphics memory recommendation?

Thanks for the feedback.

Best solution

You don't have to replace anything, the game will run fine on your current system. Forget about what EA recommends. Look and test here :

Another thing you wont need 4GB VRAM, unless you wants to play at some crazy resolution. 2GB VRAM is more than enough for you.

I think you will be fine, also last I checked nvidia didn't have any kind of advantage over AMD in battlefield 3, AMD actually had slightly higher scores. I can't speak for any other EA games but since your concerned with BF4 I think nvidia or AMD will work fine.

Check out Game-Debate and Tech Radar. FPS tests show the Nvidia cards run BF3 up to 25-30 frames better than ATI Radeon cards. The ATI cards have more graphics memory but in terms of efficiency Nvidia wins in BF3. However, in other games the ATI card rapes Nvidia...

My concern is just running the game on Ultra. I feel that there is no real point of spending money on a PC rig unless you can enjoy the game on decent FPS at HIGH/ULTRA, cuz if you can't do that getting a console is much more practical. Unless, you like to play Solitaire, Angry Birds, and do your homework occasionally on your PC. :)
