Hey Guys,

I just started playing the BF4 BETA and the game seems to run pretty bad on my pc up to BF3. I changed all the setting so they were the lowest that they could go but I still wasnt getting no more than 20/25 fps max. So I was wondering if you guys can help me out with some upgrades that I can buy for my pc so that ill be able to get a decent playable fps on at least medium settings, Im kinda on a budget so the cheapest solutions will be the best! I have around £200 at the moment and Ill have around £350 by the end of October but I prefer to buy the parts now if possible.

Heres my pc spec:




If there is any other information you need about my PC or anything else, I can provide it to you .

Thanks alot !

Hope you can help.

Get the HD7950 or GTX760 now, then if you have more $$ get the FX6300 later.

No, you can't. I5 is intel cpu that has either LGA1150,1155 or 1156 socket, the MB you had is AMD with AM3+ socket if your MB is the rev3.1.

Oh okay then well Ill just have to pick up the FX6300 with the next paycheck! I think ill be getting the 760 card, heres a link to the one ill be getting : http://www.scan.co.uk/products/2gb-msi-gtx-760-twin-fro...(x16)-6008mhz-gddr5-gpu-1085mhz-boost-1150mhz-core . Just want to know if its one of the better ones off the list you sent for the money?

Also, in one of the reviews it said this "Do however note that this non-reference design requires 1x 6pin & 1x 8pin PCIe power." I dont really understand what this ment or if I will have both these slots for the card on my motherboard

Those 6pin or 8pin pcie power cables is for powering GTX760, you can find them in your PSU, if the PSU does not have that you need upgrade your PSU. You need one at least 500W like the one in the link. Note: don't cut corners one the PSU, you need good brand like antec, some of Be Quiet, Corsair ( not the CM model), XFX and high end like SeaSonic.
I recommend to get the XFX for good price and brand. http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1550s...

Sorry, I don't know too because I am in USA. And I add other link the GPU. http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-video-card-n760tf2g...

Well it looks like I need a new PSU aswell then because I only have a 400w in my PC at the moment . So will this power supply : http:// Will it power all of my parts in my case, like will it have all the right connectors? Plus, is there any cheaper PSU's that are a good brand and quality?

Sorry for so many questions, I just dont wanna make a mistake !
