Recommend me a PC build for Battlefield 4

For now, only Dice knows how more demanding BF4 is over BF3. The past BF titles have been pushing systems though, requiring CF/Sli to play on highest smoothly

BF4 is supposed to run better in DX11.1, which sadly only is supported fully in Windows 8

Getting a 770 or 780 with a Phenom II is a waste. TC, you'd be best served getting a 4670k+mobo and upgrading the GPU later.

Yes my initial plan is to first get

Intel Core i7-3770K
&
gigabyte z77x-ud5h

then depending on the budget i'll get the graphics card. Right now i think i would go with GTX 760 Superclocked, any chance of price drop in november for GTX 770 or 780?

There's almost 100% certainty Nvidia cards will drop in price in reaction to AMD's new line of video cards that are set for release in October. At least if AMD is competitive.

CPU, motherboard and video card. As to what you'd need, well that depends on your budget.

600 series was (is) damn expensive to the 7000 seires despite having pretty similar if not identical performance. that's what spurred me to get my 7870 then 660/600ti.

I like Nvidia, but the prices are prohibitive at times. Loved my 8800GT even up till it died.

Again it depends on AMD being competitive. I read something about AMD's top offering outperforming Titan and it's going to MSRP at like 600 USD I think.

eh I wouldn't bet on that. Nvidia really hasn't proven they do this the past few gens of cards. I mean prices drop a bit over time but not much, at least no more then 40-50 bucks tops not including random sales.

Also is your computer really that bad? Your system still seems to be a pretty decent midrange machine. I can't imagine BF4 won't play just fine on high. I know it's nice to max every slider but in reality ticking a couple things down isn't the end of the world and not really worth spending hundreds upon hundreds of dollars to rectify when the in game the difference won't be that noticeable once the games in motion.

If you do upgrade I would go with a new CPU/MOBO since that looks to be the thing in most need of an upgrade. The GPU should still tide you over until the next gen of cards just fine.
