I'm looking to build myself a gaming computer just for Black Ops 2 (for now). I currently play Battlefield 3 & Black Ops 2 on the PS3 but want to focus on Battlefield 4 when it comes out. Since it won't be out for a long time, I'm thinking I'll just build a computer for Black Ops 2. I know Black Ops 2 doesn't have a whole lot to handle unlike Battlefield 3, so I'm sure it won't be more than $500 as a buddy of mine build a pc for BF3 for $550 and it runs high graphics.
So what do you think a computer would cost for Black Ops 2 to run at medium graphics? I have a keyboard, mouse, headset, and monitor, I don't have the OS or obviously the computer.
Do you think I could build one for $350-$450?

saying as you want to run bf4 i would say spend a little more on the cpu and get a quad core rather than a dual. (its likely how he managed to get high end gfx on a very tight budget) bf4 will benefit more from a quad and when the time comes its cheaper to upgrade a gfx card than to upgrade a whole system when you realise the cpu and gfx you have wont cut it...
so yeah get the best cpu you can afford and put about 100-130 into the gfx for now... then when bf4 turns up spend 250+ on a high end gfx card and watch your pc murder it...


to cover your self an intel i5 quad core 250+
a 550w decent brand psu (preferably seasonic or coolermaster/corsair or xfx) will cost about 75-100
cheap case. cheap hdd, cheap dvd burner.
what ever you have left spend on the gfx... but try to spend 550+ all in.

The GPU on that APU is pretty low end, although it is the best integrated graphics you can get, it's still pretty low end. How about you give us a set budget you can spend and we will recommend you a good build with pretty good graphics..?

I like that build..just I don't have the OS so I'm digging into 500 there, right?
My budget is at $450, sadly..but this isn't Battlefield 3 ya know so I bet it could work, right?
This includes the pc build as well as the OS. Think it could be done?

Yes, no problem. Since there was no OS in your first build, I figured you had it already.

I'd want a i5 really if I was the OP, might as well, he'll be annoyed if he gets one to weak and needs to upgrade again in 2 years, think the 7850 could keep going for 3 years anyhow, awhile the G860 only lasts 2 years at best for gaming.
