yes...BF4 definitely likes a strong cpu

Take the i5 4670k instead of the i7. It is cheaper and performs almost the same.
And no, upgrating Ram or Motherboard wont improve frames (it will but only like 2fps).

So better CPU will help in this case?

oh yeah...BF4 does real well on the 6300 and 8350 if you wanted to go to AMD to save some money but if you have the money the I5 4670k is more than enough...the I7 is almost always overkill in a purely gaming situation.

Yes, AMD CPUs overclock greatly!
