Are you looking for a prebuilt pc or are you planning to build it yourself?

If you need an OS and want to play games like BF4, there is no way. If you don't want to use an apu and DON'T need an os, there is still no way. Bf4 is cpu bound, so a quad core i5 is ideal, which will set you back $200 alone. A solid gpu to play those games will cost upwards of 100 as well. Do yourself a favor and save up a good sum of money so you can get quality parts that will last you awhile. 600-800 dollars would be a more reasonable price range.

The new kaveri APU line by AMD is pretty good graphics wise. They've been tested to play BF4 on high settings at 60 fps. Here's a link to a testing vid: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=axyHkKn_e80

Keep in mind that they only tested the game on single player so I have no idea how well it performs on multiplayer.

Sure, there are some apus capable of playing, but the OP said he didnt want to use an apu.

Just putting it out there in case he changes his mind. You can also crossfire the kaveri APU with a GPU as well so it's not completely irrelevant to what he's asking for.

As far as a good cheap GPU I would suggest something from the Radeon series, because the prices are pretty reasonable. However, even then a $450 budget is cutting it very close and you will have to skimp on some parts.

Not really, unless you're willing to go with an apu.

your not going to get decent performance with an apu. just save up some more and build a decent gaming pc. 700-800$ budget would build a great gaming pc.

Obviously GPU's are better, but APU's are capable of delivering some pretty decent power these days. Just look at what the Ps4 is capable of with just an AMD APU.

If I understand correctly the Ps4 is sold for less than it is actually worth because they expect to gain back a profit from all of the online sales as well as playstation plus.

My thoughts are the price for pc gaming is more upfront, however you save a lot of money over time. From the awesome sales, no yearly online service fees, and the vast array of peripherals you will save money. My vote is to spend more upfront for a better performing pc, however an a10 will run the games just not exceptionally.

I think so, although I can't say I've ever heard of an 8670D. The processor is fine but what is an 8670D because it's not listed on newegg as a gpu. I imagine that it's part of the APU, but I'm not really sure.

My suggestion: get a CPU that has the graphics taken out. This will reduce the cost of the CPU from over $100 to somewhere around $80, like mine(AMD Athlon x4 750k fm2 socket).
