Working on My First Build Input on Part Selection

Hey this is my first time doing a full build, is this a good system for gaming, will it be able to play games life BF4 at a frame rate of about 45-60 FPS, and if some of these parts aren't up to par, what would be good parts to replace them. The budge I have is about $750.




well first... did you get that build from some where else as im almost positive i recommended that to someone else.... and for your budget thats my 2 cents. left you some money for a cheap case and CD reader writer. Also i didnt know if i should include a copy of windows in your build so i didnt if you do need one you can cut down the HDD to a 1tb and use that money on it. With all the extras i didnt include , aslong as you dont go crazy with the case and what not, that should fit your budget.

Yeah that build does look oddly familiar lol.  Here's my suggestion(s):

Build Base:

CPU: 6 Core AMD to help with BF4's optimization for more cores.

MOBO: Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard.  Good mobo with a good chipset and very nice VRMs

RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory.  Typical stuff.  8GB should be good for a while.

HDD: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive.  Mass storage.  Most people don't need more than 1TB

Case: NZXT Source 210 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case.  Great budget case.

PSU: XFX 550W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply.  High quality PSU.  Don't skimp out on this stuff.  I have one of these in my own rig, and it works awesome.

OPTION 1(better game performance, slower in overall usage):

GPU: MSI Radeon HD 7970 3GB Video Card.  Great video card for the money, and should be able to use Mantle with BF4.

OPTION 2(fast boot and loading times, less FPS)

SSD: A-Data Premier Pro SP900 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk.  Put your OS and commonly used programs/games on here and it'll make the whole computer snappy.  Everything should load and boot quick.

GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB Video Card.  Weaker GPU compared to option 1.  Should still be pretty good for most games.

Something I forgot to mention was the case is something I want to keep, it looks cool, plus I know it will out live the parts, so rather than replacing a smaller case later on I want go with a bigger one. The other thing is I do lite 3d rendering for school and need a GPU that can keep up. 

Thanks for the input so far.

I just realized that you linked the default pcpartpicker link lol.  Go to your pcpartpicker and look for a permalink in the top left hand corner and paste it here.

Heres the current build with permalink :

Just gonna put it out there, a mid-tower ATX case is pretty big already.  But if you prefer looks over performance, then so be it.

PSU:  Something other than CoolMax.  Coolmax's power suppies are usually low-quality. is a great PSU.

RAM:  Dual channel, please.  This will be a bit faster in daily usage:

GPU:  Kinda last-gen.  These should give you better performance at 1080p:
