I'd prefer component recommendations with low prices if possible.

I do not know much about which component works best with what.

The main objective for this build would be to play Battlefield 4 on at least medium or higher settings.

CPU: AMD A10-5800K 3.8GHz Quad-Core Processor
GPU: Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB Video Card
MOBO: MSI FM2-A85XA-G43 ATX FM2 Motherboard
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1333 Memory

Best solution

you will need a better GPU to play on medium or high settings, especially since that card is only 1 gb.

here are some options, slightly more expensive but will show you much better results.


as for CPU:

it has the same socket, same price, but higher clock speed.

the ram is great. and for motherboards, im not really a pro, im sure someone else can give you a better opinion. but by the looks of it its a pretty good mobo. you could look into getting a slightly cheaper one and put the extra money into the more expensive GPU.

you can use this chart as a reference to see where GPU's stand in the hierarchy.

Thanks @dempy19.

Any suggestions for a cheap motherboard with the above CPU and GPU that was recommended by dempy19?
