I built my pc with a Pentium Dual core G3420 clocked at 3.2ghz CPU and I recently picked up a used R9 280x since the prices dropped so much.

In Battlefield 4, i get about 30-50 fps on ultra and just barely 60 on high.

Is the cpu the problem?

Check the GPU load during gameplay, if it isn't in the high 90s then something is holding it back.
GPU-Z is a nice light weight monitoring tool

Your CPU is terrible for multiplayer games like BF4. Get at the very least an i3 preferably, an i5. Or a 6300 on the AMD side.
