Will my new system have any trouble running BF3 and BF4? Please review

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I recently built a new PC for school/architectural 3D modeling, but I also had gaming in the back of my mind while selecting components. I'm hoping it can serve as a good gaming PC while being just a very fast PC in general, as that's basically what Revit (an AutoDesk program that has pretty much become the new standard for architectural modeling) requires. Revit just wants the fastest computer possible.

But again, I'm hoping this machine can serve as a gaming machine as well, and one that can run demanding games like BF3 and BF4, as I'd rather be able to use this PC instead of a next gen console. I'll be switching from consoles, BTW. Also, I know it can run these games, but what I mean specifically, is will it have any trouble giving me a great gaming experience that will equal or surpass the new consoles while pushing a 27" 1440p monitor (the monitor I have purchased for this rig is the Crossover 2755 AMG, which is an outstanding display btw), preferably on high or ultra settings.

I've already purchased everything and built the entire PC, except for the graphics card, which is still in the mail. Surprisingly, this rig is running the 27" monitor with it's onboard graphics right now, and isn't all that bad for regular tasks. However, games are almost unplayable, obviously. The GPU will get here monday or tuesday and I'll be able to see for myself if it runs BF3 well, but I wanted to get some feedback for more savvy people who can tell me (theoretically) if it will be on par with next gen consoles when running BF4 (considering the 1440p monitor).

Without further adieu, here are the specs:

-Bitfenix Ghost case
-Asus Z87-Pro Motherboard
-Intel i7-4770k Haswell CPU
-16GB Corsair Vengeance Pro 1866 RAM
-256 GB Samsung 840 Pro SSD
-2TB Seagate Barracuda HDD
-Seasonic Platinum 660W PSU
-Corsair H100i CPU cooler
-Windows 7 Professional 64bit
-ASUS GTX 780 DirectCU II GPU

I hope I made the right choice going with the ASUS GTX 780, as I almost went with EVGA SC ACX 780, but the ASUS just seemed really well built and is reputed to be cooler and quieter. I guess more importantly is to hope that going with the GTX 780 was the right choice and a going with a single card in general. I just hope I can run BF4 on Ultra with the 1440p monitor.

Thanks for any advice, reassurance, etc. The rest of the system is pretty much set in stone, but I suppose technically I could return the ASUS GTX 780 if it's not the best option for what I want to do.

As far as I am aware Battlefield 4 will be CPU bound like the last one so I don't think it will really matter much which you choose out of the 2 GPU. You have a really nice system there so make sure you take care of it! thumb.gif

I doubt Battlefield 3/4 will be any trouble for your rig. sniper.gif
