Any PC BF4 players on here?
I want to get a new pc over the next couple of months to play BF4 and Company of Heroes 2……after a 4 year hiatus from pc gaming I’ve come to the crashing realisation that console games are to easy, repetitive and downright boring.
So has anyone got any advice on a gaming rig as I’m out of the loop and advice on where to find the best prices?
I’m looking at a rig similar to something like this –
CPU = Haswell I7 4770k
GPU = Asus AMD/ATi R9 280x
RAM = 8gb DDR3 Ram
Motherboard = no clue
Storage = SSD for windows and games with a large hardrive for the storage of music, films and other files.
Looking to keep the price below 1000 quid if at all possible. I did want a laptop as the mobile cards seem to run everything well these days….but apparently they cough and splutter with company of heroes 2….which disappointed me.Posted 4 years ago
Yeah I manage fine at 1440p with my 2600k and 480 GTX. Could do with a new gfx card but I’ll wait till the 2nd hand market of the 780’s are a bit cheaper then upgrade.
I bought my 580 for £100 second hand. Although it is a few years old, it runs multiplayer on a mix of ultra and high at 50fps.Posted 4 years ago
Not had time to play BF4 half as much as BF3 so left it whilst they ironed out the worst of the problems.
60fps on low is the minimum I’d be aiming for. Any higher detail hinders enemy spotting. Getting the highest fps your monitor can handle really helps with training hand eye co-ordination due to less video lag between frames. Playing on a large 120Hz monitor is super smooth but bike parts come first!
If you’ve got an old second monitor lying around seriously consider hooking it up and using it to display a full size map instead of the minimap.
Add a custom cfg file to your main BF4 folder to show fps ingame, remove suppression blur etc..
Eye candy is all well and good until it hinders gameplay!Posted 4 years ago
Tom_w, I’d be looking at Overclockers for quality hardware although searching around you will find cheaper…but I find the savings in postage from one place usually counter act the slightly higher prices they command on a few things.
Doug, I’ve ditched the 2nd monitor at home as moved the PC into the living room so I can game and not be completely ignorant to Mrs Dutch. Now thinking about using an old android tablet for the same though as the 7″ screen would be perfect for that. Hmm play time later me thinksPosted 4 years agoRussell96Subscriber
I rebuilt my main PC recently with the following spec
Intel I7 4770K
Asus Z87 Pro motherboard
2x8Gb Crucial Ballistix DDR3-1600 RAM (Runs great at 1866 so a bargain)
Sapphire Toxic R9 280X
Samsung Evo SSD (Stunningly quick)
I value silence in a PC unless its being hammered 100% so I fitted it with a Noctua DH-14 heatsink and 4 Notuca case fans.
The Asus Z87 Pro is well worth a look for the whole AI suite of software that comes with it to control overclocking, power saving and cooling. It profiles all the fans works out their stall speed and works out the optimum flows to keep everything cool, then for the overclocking click a button and it goes and tests everything and then sets a CPU overclock based on your individual build, maybe not the best that can be got if you know your stuff but for just one click its a lot easier to do.Posted 4 years ago
