no you got a fair price for your rig. It should run battle field 4 just fine though you may not be able to max out the settings. meduim to high would be my guess depending on filtering.

It's a pretty good price. Nothing really wrong with the setup. I tried building it on pcpartpicker and was up to $950 with just CPU, MB, GPU, and RAM.

Wow thanks for the quick feedback just created a account on Tom's and i think ill stay. With all that said i was playing League of legends yesterday with like 175 FPS was crazy. Lol anyway the computer just shut off randomly after my game ended and i called the guy i bought it from and he said he might have out to much thermal paste on it and he will redo it. The guy i bought it from is a pretty trustworthy guy from work so i don't think he would rip me off but just kinda sucks i'm already having problems after 2 games on a free to play game...

just make sure he gives you ongoing tech support for the rig, at least throughout the first year, thats really nice of him to apply the thermal paste again, you should ask if you can watch for the future if u have to do it yourself

what worries me is "700w power supply" if he didnt brand and mention a brand to you maybe hes hiding it..do you know the brand and model/can you check?

run HWmonitor while gaming non full screen and check your temps, if you get real high like 60C and over and the shut off happens its overheating and the thermal paste could be the cause. if your PC is turning off when the temp is under 40C then the power supply is clearly the culprit. without a BSOD error its hard to diagnose.

That's what he told me to do but i didn't have time but this weekend i differently will. He also said take the side panel off and put my hand in there to see how hot it is without touching anything. But thank you for bringing the power supply dilemma to my attention.

Thats a dream setup you just purchased. You should be good with most of the games but bf4 and crysis may prove too heavy for this system at maxed out settings.


Yeah thanks for the reinsurance the rig is pretty nice, check it out:
