So I've found this PC the Chillblast Fusion Elixir.(Here's the link: http://www.chillblast.com/Chillblast-Fusion-Elixir.html )

You might have heard of it and from what I've seen online and from reviews it is a good system but I'm not sure how good it is. I've had loads of advice on what I could build as my fist gaming PC but I don't really want to do that. What I would like to know is can this system run bf3 on relativity good settings and will it be able to run bf4.

Here's the system recommendation for bf4:

Quad core CPU (Intel Core i5 or i7) at 3 Ghz
4 GB memory (8 GB for 64-bit operating systems)
A modern DX11 graphics card with 1 GB of video memory, GeForce 600 series or Radeon 7000 series
Windows 7 64-bit operating system
20+ GB of free harddrive space

Some parts might change because as far as I know these are for the Alpha but they will probably be very similar for the final version.

I know roughly what these specs mean but I can't read them and immediately know if the system is perfect for it. Again these are the recommendations not the requirements.

£600 is roughly my budget I know that at some point I may need to upgrade the GPU but to what I don't know. Also would I be better with a SSD at some point as well?

Thanks,

Robert

SSD you really don't "need". The only thing that I would upgrade right away would be the PSU. From what I quickly read about the one in that build is that it's garbage. As for the GPU that the build has it's an OK one. It won't be running bf3 or 4 at high settings. Most likely mediumish depending on how many fps you want to play at without having drops or spikes.

Only one really worth getting is the Corsair. It's overkill for your system but you can use it for quite a while. None of the other options I would even consider unless it was at least 80 bronze.
