I need help

I'm pretty much a hardware noob so I figured that I'd just asked you guys if these PC's can run BF3 (and BF4) easily.
This is not a homemade pc so if I include some unnecessary specs thats why :)

PC One: http://www.dragoncomputers.nl/component/page,shop.product_details/flypage,shop.flypage_new/product_id,1306/category_id,113/manufacturer_id,0/option,com_virtuemart/Itemid,72/

AMD FX-8120 EIGHT CORE 8 x 3.1GHz
1TB Harddrive
22 x Liteon DVD multi burner
8GB AMD Patriot DDR3 memory
Asrock 970 Extreme3 motherboard
NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX570 with 1280MB GDDR5 GFX card
XANGE Gamer casing
(this one is dutch)

PC Two: http://www.hitech-gamer.com/Gamer-PC/PC-GAMING-CHILLBAIN-V2.html

AMD FX 4-Core 4 x 4,2 GHz
8GB DDR3 RAM
500GB HDD
DVD ReWr
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660OC - 3072MB

If you know another great gaming PC for around $1000 dollars or 750 Euro's let me know!
Thanks

  1. Neither of those is a very good deal, the first uses last 1-2 year old parts, the second doesn't even accurately specify what CPU which makes me suspicious, and BF4 specs aren't even announced yet. I'm guessing you don't want/can't build your own comp, but tell us where you live and we'll give you some better options.
  2. I can build one myself but I'm a noob in hardware so it wouldn't be smart to pick parts myself :)
    I'm Dutch, so from The Netherlands/Holland, its in Europe on the left of Germany.
    (I know the BF4 specs aren't released yet but

    Thanks

    On what performance level will it run BF3? (low/medium/high/ultra)
    if you dont know its OK :)

    Thanks
  5. It will should run on high setting no prob, probably even ultra.

    Found this video of someone playing bf3 on ultra with the 7850

  6. Not a bad spec K - I would probably step it up to at least a 7870 for multiplayer. There is a big difference between being able to handle the single player on ultra and being able to handle the larger multiplayer maps with 32 or more players. I was using an Nvidia 560 w/ 2GB of VRAM and though it could handle high without any glitches, ultra was a stretch. Here's a link to the lowest card I would have used:
