Never built a PC before, but I want to do so for the next Battlefield title. I also want to run the game at medium to high settings and a minimum of 60 fps. I really am not sure what I am doing here and definitely do not want to screw anything up.
Also I would rather not have to upgrade a major component such as the CPU, GPU, or Motherboard for 2-3 years.

Do you need:

Monitor, keyboard, mouse and/or OS.

Supposing you have all those, you could be looking at:

+1 to this build. This will even exceed the settings you're expecting. I'm almost sure it will play BF4.

Thanks for your support. No need to be almost sure though. It WILL run BF4 and most likely very well, as it

has a top-notch CPU and GPU - plus the ideal amount of RAM.
