$2500 Gaming PC for Bf4 and other games?

I do need a monitor and I will be playing in 1080p.
Would prefer if you include an OS

I would need this build not only for gaming but for general usage such as watching videos etc.

The games I'll be playing are games such as Battlefield 4, Battlefield 3, Arma 3 and Arma 2, and Garrys Mod.

And I don't need peripherals.

Thank you for helping me out guys.

    Could this build run bf4 max at a good frame rate?


    At 1080p absolutely. You should get 75FPS average on max(ultra quality) settings.
    If you are thinking higher resoltuions then look here: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-780-ti-review-benchmarks,3663-5.html
  3. You should be able to put together a nice i7 4770k with a GTX 780 and a 27" 144Hz display and a fat SSD for that budget.

    Edit: Mojojojo knows what I am talking about, hahah. I just did a build a couple weeks ago nearly identical, for that budget.

  5. M0j0jojo, PC build is solid. The PSU is complete overkill(good quality though) but you got room to SLI another 780. So if you know you will never SLI cards then you could step down to the EVGA Supernova G2 850W.

    You could probably consider 16GB of 1600Mhz memory for about the same cost say something like: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148657.

    Since you said you don't need any peripherals then I would think about a 500GD SSD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147249

    Upgrade of memory and SSD without a monitor should keep you under budget. Just my opinions but like I said his build is a very good starting point.
  6. I was getting 92FPS in BF4 using Ultra settings at 1920x1080. That was with a regular GTX 780, not Ti version and no overclock on the CPU.

    That's a nice PSU but you do not need 1300W for anything. Only if you're using more than 2-way SLI. 3 or 4 way SLI requires that kind of power but otherwise it's not necessary. And Dominator Platinum is an absolutely ridiculous waste of money, I don't care what the budget is. It's literally $60 more than any other kind of RAM.
  8. Alright guys, thanks for the feedback ill change some stuff for him. I kept the same PSU cuz when i changed it costed him more than the 1300W PSU.
