Will this new build run BF4 well on 1080p?

Ok, so earlier today I asked a couple question if I could run BF4 well and for the most part yes, so I tweaked my build up since people said my motherboard I wanted to put was not good (It was an MSI 970A G43 AM3+). I changed the motherboard to a ASRock 970 Extreme3 R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard.
The specs of the PC are
ASRock 970 Extreme3 R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
8GB of Crucial Ballistix Tacticall 240-Pin DDR3 RAM
AMD FX 6300 Six Core CPU
Radeon R9-270X 2GB GDDR5 Overclocked edition
Western Digital 500GB Hardrive at 7200RPM
CORSAIR CX series CX500 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply.
How will this run BF4 on High, what will be the fps and how will run on ultra, what would be the average fps. Both in 1080P. Also since my GPU supports mantle and my processor is a six core which is recommended and since BF4 is AMD optimized, i think it should run well now?

You will be hitting 60 FPS constant on medium, 50-60 on high, and probably around 45 on ultra. Now, if you have windows 8, you will gain 5-10 FPS, due to DX 11.1.

Alright that seems reasonable considering this a 650$ build. Also I will be using Windows 8.1 and add mantle on top of that it should run quite well. :)

I agree that your build will run the game well,, IMHO I would consider adding a SSD to the mix. If done,, I believe it will have you spawn a few seconds earlier (which has been a big deal to me in other shooters.. It does not have to be huge,, just big enough for your windows install and you few "games of the moment" you would also notice a big increase in boot/reboot speeds.. 120gb is likely plenty unless you want to put a bunch of games on it..

I'm no tech expert,, just an enthusiast that likes games, If my advise is off track,, Im sure one of these experts will let us know!! ")

I would love to do that but im on a budget, I will be upgrading to an ssd in the future though. But first, I gotta build this PC :D

SSD's are a great addition to any build. BF4's loading times are RIDICULOUSLY long on a normal harddrive, and with an SSD, you could grab valuable armored assets such as the attack jet or mobile AA.

How long are the loading times? O.o

The only appreciated advantages the SSD brings to your table is a faster boot, no noise, no heat.

SSD is not a must. But none-the-less, if you can afford one, get a 64GB/128GB SSD just for the windows (as dperkey said).

At the moment I cant afford to get an SSD but will upgrade to one in the near future. :)

I am sorry but you will run on 5-10 Fps on low :( 

Just kidding.

45fps max on ultra 1080p
On high you will get to 60fps but sometimes maybe 50
On medium and below you will be over 60fps the whole time

Note its all in 1080p


An SSD would be nice as rigs are usually crippled without an SSD but i dont have one too, so...!

Yeah... I need one.

An SSD is great for putting windows and your games on as the PC will boot almost instantly and load times for games will be blazing fast!



Great build :)

No worries. Good luck. Your build is good/compatible and ready to rock ;)
