BF3 / Steam Build For Cheap

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a friend who wants a pc that will play BF3/BF4 and Steam games at ~40-60 FPS at 720-1080p for ~$400-500. He doesn't care about graphic settings so he will most likely have them at low. I quickly pulled this together from PC Part Picker, any suggestions would be awesome. If there is a prebuilt kit that is a better bang for the buck within the price range he is open to that as well. Thanks!
Note: He may have his own case at home, but if there is a decent case you would recommend, go for it! Also i dont have any experience with lower end graphics cards so also suggest one that you think is worth it!
