I guys !
I need help, i don't have a stict budget but i want to know what would be the cheapest possible PC to run BF4 on ultra preset at 1080p with 60FPS in multiplayer maps...i can deal with a cheap ugly case (as long as it's working okay for ventilation and all) a non-mudlar PSU...etc...but i want quality and reliability and mostly PERFORMANCE PER DOLLAR in BF4...i've read that BF4 is well optimised for multi-core CPU so i was checking at maybe an FX-6300 would this CPU be good for BF4 ultra? i don't need mouse keybord and monitor...no OS needed...only the gaming tower...thanks in advance

Indeed the FX-6300 is a very capable CPU and will run BF4 on ultra settings, BF4 use 3 heavy threads and spread the load to other core, i tested myself with a FX-6300 and radeon HD7950 (R9 280) wich about the same performance as the GTX 760 and i was getting about 60 to 65 FPS on most map, the game was really playable at those settings...here's what i came up with:
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor ($124.75 @ Vuugo)
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper TX3 54.8 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($16.79 @ DirectCanada)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-970A-D3 ATX AM3+ Motherboard ($49.88 @ Canada Computers)
Memory: Kingston Black Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($79.57 @ DirectCanada)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($57.97 @ DirectCanada)
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 760 2GB Video Card ($269.04 @ TigerDirect Canada)
Case: Antec One ATX Mid Tower Case ($44.99 @ NCIX)
Power Supply: EVGA 500W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply ($44.99 @ Memory Express)
Total: $687.98

These are prices for partpicker CANADA, if you log on to particpker.com (US) you will see the prices are even better by almost 20%...those prices also includes 20$ worth in mail in rebates...

This kit is very nice it will play BF4 on highest settings (ultra) and will allow for some overclocking of this CPU is you may need it in the future, nothing crazy tho this motherboard is not the best for overclocking but it could get some more out of this CPU provided you don't play with the voltages too much...i could recommand higher quality motherboard if you need...

if you are a AMD fan and limited budget go for FX 6300 or FX 8350 piledriver. if you can increase a bit more for ultra setting in BF4 go for i5-4670K.

I'd suggest the fx-6300 and spend a bit extra on a GTX 770. I have 2 770's (but battlefield doesnt utilize SLi well at all so I run one card when I play). I get about 60 fps on ultra and I have 2 monitors, 1 for the game and one for the minimap.

Wow thank you very much for that paitjsu, that's what i'm gonna go with, this build is actually under what i planned to spend on it so i will go with this an probably put a GTX 770 in it instead and maybe go with a better case i had the thermaltake Chaser a31 snow edition in head i think it's pretty nice looking, anyways thanks for that...

i get it that the Motherboard is not the best one available and if i need OC i will try to see what i can get out of this CPU on stock or auto voltages...but for my need i think it's fine. Also i appreciate the fact that i can have this after market cooler for the CPU i've read on the net that the stock coolers are never very good so it's nice that i fit's in the price...thanks a lot and see ya on the battle field !!!!

No problem my man !
Have fun with your new PC, yes i too think that investing a bit more money in a GTX 770 is money well spent, i went with what you said, the MINIMUM for BF4 ultra and i think the GTX 760 was the MINIMUM and maybe for 60 constant FPS you would have had to turn down anti-aliasing to 2x or something...but the 770 defenetly run BF4 ultra at 1080p and the FX-6300 too...have fun !

i say a terabyte hard drive is also nice and not too expensive if you want to store a little more.

Here is my latest video using the official AMD 14.4 beta drivers. They've definitely improved over the 14.3 version. I used Action! to record, still learning how to use it, so far works ok.
i7 4470k
280x
neither overclocked.

If you can find a 280x for a good price, it will easily outperform the 770 if not the 780 on BF4.

I forgot to enable perfoverlay.framefilelogenable to capture the data to analyze, but it's easy to see the FPS is very good; much better than DX11 on my system.

Try a 8320 or 8350 with a M5A97 R2.0 motherboard, get 1866Mhz RAM with an AMD card (280-290x) and with case and drives this would be about $750-850.

Hey there,
check out this video:
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=5n5dolXyyg0

Its $500 and at the start of the video he shows BF4 running at 70 fps on medium 1080p.
If you think about the fact he was also recording which can drop your framerate, I can see you getting about 60 fps with this pc!

I accept you want a value for money PC but I can't actually understand why people will skimp on processors and hard drives when they make the computer more usable. I accept that they don't necessarily increase maximum frame rates but they do contribute to everything else.

Instead of a 500 gb drive get a 1tb caviar blue ezex. Since games are getting bigger and bigger u will run out of space soon.... And yup go for fx-6300 save money and spend it on a nice budget friendly gpu..
