Building a gaming pc, need advice!

I am making a new mini itx pc, I would like it to be mini itx as I dont have that much room in my bedroom to keep a pc. I was wondering if an i3 4330, an amd radeon h7770 and 8gb of ddr3 ram @ 1600mhz will allow me to play and record bf4 at least at 60 fps on medium setting?

  1. Nope probably not. Your cheaping out on the cpu and gpu. I have a gtx 780 with a i5 4670k and i run bf4 ( Without recording) at 70fps ultra.
  2. What is your budget and are you able to go to a microcenter?

    I was planning on using this for a year or so then upgrading but do you think I should save enough money to go all out sooner?

    I assumed you were in the US. UK means less deals on components.
    What does your £500 need to include, that budget will allow for a decent build, but that is compromised if you have to add in monitor/OS/mouse/keyboard.

    I have a keyboard/mouse/os and so on, the £500 is only for components really

    +1, also remember that the R9 270x can play BF4 @ medium on a decent fps.
