Would this system run BF4 @ High/Ultra 60fps? Is it worth the money?

I'm considering to buy a gaming PC for USD 500$ (The seller is kindly when it comes to price), and is it worth it and would it play next-gen games such as Battlefield 4 at high quality 1080p? Specs for the PC:

Intel Core™ i7 Quad Processor i7-2600K 3,4GHz, Socket LGA1155, 8MB

ASUS Sabertooth P67, Socket-1155 ATX, P67, DDR3, 2xPCIe(2.0)x16, CFX& SLI, SATA 6Gb/s, USB 3.0, FW, BT, EFI

Corsair Vengeance™ DDR3 1600MHz 8GB CL9 Kit w/2x 4GB XMS3 modules, CL9-9-9-24, 1.5V, Vengeance Heatspreader, 240 pin

Gainward GeForce GTX 580 1536MB PhysX
PCI-Express 2.0,"GOOD", GDDR5, 2xDVI, native-HDMI, DisplayPort, 783MHz

Sony Optiarc DVD±RW burner AD-5260S
DVDRW 24x, DL, SATA, Bulk, Black

Western Digital Caviar® Green 1TB
SATA 3Gb/sec, RPM = IntelliPower, 64MB

Corsair TX 750W PSU
ATX 12V V2.2, 80 Plus, Standard. 4x 6+2-pin PCIe, 8x SATA, 140mm Fan

Antec Nine Hundred Midi Tower Black

Fans: 2x 120mm Front, 1x 200mm Top, 1x 120mm Back, Blue LEDs, Window

So, is it worth the money and will it play games smoothly without lag? I want a simple answer like yes or no, but also tell why and what i could expect when it comes to high end games

It's a good deal, but you'll need a better GPU. It will be your bottleneck for ultra.

High @1080 yes. Ultra @ 1080 no. A mix between the two. BF4 is pretty graphic intense game, one of the highest on the market. It really takes a 770 or 280x to fully run BF4 on Ultra sustaining frames above 60. But overall it's a good system to max out most games.

$500 that is a pretty good deal. Is it someone you know personally or just someone from craigslist or something.
GTX 580 will run pretty good maybe not the full 60FPS at all times, but It would be pretty good.

Thank you guys! Definately going to buy this computer, you really gave me a clear answer. The guy who sells this to me lives in the same city as myself and first he wanted 1000$ for it (3 months ago), but now when he got a new pc he would consider selling it for 500$ to me. :)  And I will probably upgrade to the 770 when I have the money. :)

Make him run some stress tests to make sure your not getting what seems a great deal when In reality its a lemon. stuff like Prime95 for 30mins or more, an hour preferably. MSI Kombustor for the GPU stressing.

Sorry to bump this but I had to say something, barto that is completr BS you do not need a 280x to run bf4 on max for playable fps, a friend recently built a pc and has a 7870 oc edition which is compared to a 270/270x and he ran bf4 maxed out with a fps ranging from 50 down to 40.

That's cool. I'm not sure why you are trying to call me out. I'm simply trying to provide helpful insight. If you disagree, that's fine. Not every build is equal and performance will vary with each one. I'm simply providing some help based tests done by professionals.

The term that defines game play is "playable", which is a matter of opinion. Which isn't always right or wrong. A view. I'm glad your friend is able to play on Ultra MSAA x4 with a minimum frames a 40. That's better than what Tom's go on their 2550k @ 4.2 Ghz system when they tested the Beta. But a lot has changed since then.



Enjoy gaming!

Not sure what Revster's point is; however, the machine is a good deal and you should have no problem running BF4 on high at decent framerates. A few mods and you could run it at ultra too.

I had a very similar configuration in a past build. My experience was:

BF3 on high: Yes
BF3 on Ultra: No
