Will my new PC play Battlefield 4 on max settings?

I have ordered for a new PC and was wondering if it would be able to play bf 4 when it comes out. I understand that their has been recommended requirements released but I was curious if my PC would handle max settings at 1080p. I do plan on using 4 monitors in the future but for now I will just be using the one.

System spec:
I7 4770k
Sabertooth z87 motherboard
8 gb Kingston hyper x DDR 3 ram
Coolermaster silent pro modular psu 850 watt
Nvidea GTX670 2 gb graphics card

I intend to get another 8 gb of ram in future and looking at overclocking and sli. I have another question though. Is it possible to have 2 overclocked graphics cards in sli, I will be overclocking them. Would they need to be at same clock?

But the main question is how will bf 4 perform on my system? Would my system struggle with multi monitor?

(I also have none stock CPU cooler but only want to overclock to 4 maybe 4.2 ghz)

You should be able to play it at ultra settings on a single monitor, but if you want to use multiple you'll need another GPU. Extra RAM is absolutely unnecessary for gaming, and even memory intensive programs rarely use that much. You can OC in SLI, should you need it, but they will need to be clocked at the same speeds. If for some reason BF4 is more graphics intensive than we expect, another 670 in SLI should still be more than enough.

I would go with a GTX 770/780 instead, otherwise everything else looks good.

You will be just fine with the GTX 670 there is no need to spend the extra money on a GTX 770/780 when a 670 will work just as good and it will. The GTX 770 is still based on the same silicon as the 670 just a higher boost clock and memory other than that is is really the same. When you do multimonitor you will want to go SLI but until then one card will work great.

Thank you very much guys. I do know that 16 gb ram is a lot but I'm not only doing gaming. That said I probably wouldn't use it all anyways.

I would only get 16GB if your into intensive video editing.

Been playing the beta at about 40 fps. This is a beta though so it will have less frames than the full thing.

Have done. But recently it's been more like 45 fps. I guess there are a lot of factors.
