  1. It's a medium card, but before you get it, make sure your other pc components are up to it. If your cpu is weak, it will bottleneck it, which means your graphic card won't be able to achieve it's full potencial in game. If you have a very weak PSU, you'll need 500W (or greater) power supply with one 75W 6-pin. 4gb RAM minimum, not to mention you should definitely get the 2gb version of the HD 7700 to play on 1080p resolution. If you wanna play on a higher res. or with a 3 monitor set up, get a better graphic card with 4gb.

    i have a 500W PSU, 8gb ram and i can get the 2gb version of the card but i am wondering if it will run bf4
  3. As you can see here, your cpu is weak.

    And here, you can check the performance of your card on bf3, so you have something close to bf4 to compare (check second box, ultra quality):

    And that's WITHOUT a bottleneck.
    Ultra won't be achievable, but I'd say you can play fairly well on medium to high on multiplayer.
