    A suggestion to you. That CPU in your build is somewhat weak for these newest games. But your budget is limited so i put the best one you could afford in my build. The GPU in my build is a Tahiti LE which is stronger than R9 270x (based on HD 7870). The only thing i hesitate is the motherboard. But i think this one is good enough for this build.

    When i click on it, it says $694
  5. I'm just worried about a possible drawback of CPU. An i5 could provide you with more future proofing in gaming. Although even with an i5 and a 7870XT you will possibly not be able to max out BF4 (in detail), you know right? What resolution does your monitor use, by the way?
  6. 1680x1050
  7. Well, here is a review by Tom's about BF4 performance of various GPUs and also there is a CPU benchmark page through the end of review (10th page i guess). So it seems a 7870XT will probably do very nicely at your resolution. But i recall a "decent" CPU (like an i5 perhaps) will provide you with better experience in BF4. WoW also takes advantage of a faster CPU as i remember. Please take a look at this Tom's article about BF4 to have an idea:

    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/battlefield-4-graphics-card-performance,3634-6.html
  8. By the way a HD 7870 XT at that price IS a steal in my opinion :)
  9. I know i want a i5 but i cannot afford it right now although i plan to upgrade in the future
