So hey guys i just got my first gaming PC. And i was wondering if it could handle BF4 at medium settings 1920X1080. round 40-60 fps

My specs
CPU: FX-6300
GPU: XFX R7 260X
RAM: 8 GB OF RAM 1600. BRAND KINGSTON HYPER X
HDD: SEAGATE 1 TB

Yes you should be able to as long as you have a 2GB video card, and the recommended CPU is a AMD six core which you have. You have 8gb of ram so you should be fine, but if you don't have 2GB of VRAM you might have a little bit of a problem with keeping your fps up.
I have a 1gb GTX 650ti and the same CPU as you and I can play BF3 on high settings 1080p and I get about 60 fps in medium maps like Caspian border and about 40 or 50 in big maps like armored shield or Alborz mountain.
My results aren't from BF4, but my 650ti is a little bit slower than your 260x so you should have no problem as long as you have 2GB of VRAM, and if you do then you might be able to push it up to high settings.
Sorry if this is jumbled and a little bit confusing but I hope it helps.

Keep in mind Anand uses a super powerful i7 extreme, and that benchmark was done in single player.

For multiplayer, your setup should be fine for a mix of medium with a little high.

Periods and commas are your friend, epiczombiekill.

I see quite a lot of R7 260Xs at 2 GB, so hopefully that's the one you have. Also, the 260X is a good bit faster than the 650 Ti (unless you have the TI Boost, that's a different animal altogether though) so you should be getting upwards of 50-60 FPS on medium easily. Check out the Anandtech link I listed, it has quite a few benchmarks at different performance levels, including BF4.

HiTechObsessed - True, but you can't get reliable benchmarks in multiplayer because nothing is repeatable. And the i7 extreme is just to prevent CPU-bottlenecking. His 6300 shouldn't bottleneck the 260X at all, so he should get pretty decent performance. That, and Mantle lends itself to a system like his, with a AMD CPU and GPU.

On 1440x900 resolution or less, definitely should be playable at low settings smoothly.
AMD had demonstrated BF4 running smoothly on the integrated graphics of the upcoming Kaveri APU, and the 260X is definitely faster than that!!
Also, if the mantle API patch is released, you can supposedly expect upto 10% or more better performance boost for free!

Like I said above, in multiplayer, you should expect a a combination of mostly medium with some high settings and stay around 50 FPS or so at 1080p.

BF4 in single player runs just as well as BF3, but multiplayer needs a lot more power.

Yes, the i7 extreme is used for that, but if you are trying to say that a 6300 is just as capable as an overclocked hexacore i7 extreme, you're going to be sorely mistaken. You will get much better BF4 performance with the i7 over a 6300. Just because there is no bottleneck, doesn't mean the performance will be the same, as BF4 favors stronger CPUs a lot more than most games.

In their own review, Anandtech said their results for multiplayer were around half of what the results were in single-player.

So yes, multiplayer really requires some power.


What do you believe that my PC would run BF4 at medium on multiplayer ?

As I said twice above, you should get 40-50 at medium, with maybe a couple options set to high. Mantle will help you out a good bit, more with less frame drops than overall FPS increase.

I really don't think that mantle will help much.
The main thing mantle does is reduce the amount of information that you CPU has to send to the GPU, so you don't have to have a very fast CPU to run the game, so mantle would not do much because the FX-6300 is fast enough to run BF4 without Mantle, so no mantle will not help much at all unless you plan to under clock your CPU.

Which is why I said it'll mainly just help with less often and less noticeable frame rate increase, as opposed to overall fps gain. This is the small fps gain you see with stronger CPUs, as a better and less often minimum frame rate by default increases the average.
