How will I play BF4 at high/ultra settings in MP?

Hi guys. I want to play this at the highest quality (high FPS, lowest video lag for competitive gaming), with my new gaming PC. I was wondering what the best specs would be at 1080p, hell, even 720p, if it will work the best.

I bought this:

i7 4770k Intel Haswell 3.5 GHz processor
ASUS 770 2GB graphics card
Z87 Extreme3 Motherboard
8x2 GB GSkill Rampage RAM @ 2400 DDR3
120GB Samsung SSD
(plus everything else)

I'm playing on a Samsung TV/monitor combination I've had for years (32'' LCD).

I'm scared trying to overclock my CPU or GPU, since I know nothing of it. Does the software that comes with the GPU/CPU cover that?

I know EVGA covers their cards when you use Precision X, not sure about ASUS though.

Overclocking is easy and safe, as long as you don't go crazy with it.

You don't need to OC your CPU, that 4770k is already a massive overkill even at stock. From the rest of your component, the only thing that has the lowest bottleneck is that GPU, which is by all means already powerful. Overclocking it shouldn't be much trouble, though even at stock you should be able to run 1080p on ultra on at least 30fps.

Be careful if you want to overclock that CPU though, that thing runs hot if you are only using the stock intel cooler.

Don't ever touch the voltage as a noob, and you should be good. Go up in increments of 50mhz on the GPU until it breaks, then go back to your last good setting and bump it up 5 at a time. Testing with furmark for 15 minutes between tweaks

Same goes for your cpu, only using Prime 95 to test. And finishing off with a 24 hour burn test. If you don't feel like having your computer out of commission that long, do it while you sleep and leave it while you work.

See, you're speaking another language to me. I'll have one of my computer-whiz buddies help me out.

What kind of FPS can I get at High and not Ultra?

at high you will probably get constant 60fps with 2x Anti Aliasing, at ultra you can still run it at higher than 60fps most of the time, but sometimes it will drop constantly.

Yeah, if you keep the AA down or off, you should have no problem running the game at high/ultra with 60FPS at 1080p.

im on a i5-3570k and gtx 670 both oc'd and i can run it at 1080p with 60fps so you'll be fine

i personally like to use res scale up to 140% with post process aa off for less bluriness with 40-50 fps
