Try this http://systemrequirementslab.com/cyri [systemrequirementslab.com] and pick Battlefield 4. You can run it I will say, but on every single detail on low (maybe some medium mixed in). And it should net you 35 - 45 FPS if that.

You can run it, but maybe not in 60 fps.

A great tip to gain fps is to lower the resolution scaling in the options. That setting can make wonders, but you will loose graphics on it

1gb of gpu ram is very very low 2gb is good but still high will be hard to run at 1080 3gb is much better for bf4 i just think 2gb is a bit to little for smooth fps at high

edit as your new 60 fps is always the minimum target to get and higher so keep that in mind

Well I dont have a big tower so thats why I need a low profile graphics card and that one is the best I found, but if I set the resolution to 1600x900 I can get better perfomance right?

Are you using a CRT monitor or a flat panel? If it's a flat panel, probably best to leave it at the default resolution.

Flat panel, the default resolution is 1600x900

I'm surprised no one has mentioned mice. If your mouse isn't up to par, your game won't amount to much. Anything above 1600 dpi should suffice.

Not necessarily true. I ran with an old MS $15 mouse before. Depends on preferences and what they're used to.

I suppose so. Reflexes help as well. I have had three heart attacks, and a stroke so a turnip has better reflexes than I. I still can't shoot worth a shite. But occasionally I get a decent headshot so all is well.

Another question, does a low profile GPU delivers the same performance as a "normal" GPU. Example GTX 650 LP (Low Profile) and GTX 650

what a case is so cheap starting at $50 why even think of keeping a small case that limits your choice of parts

Low profile cards offer lower power consumption @ the cost of performance since they have to give something away to make it smaller.

You may be able to get an old PC from Goodwill or another second-hand store or even a computer store for cheap. Gut it and use the case or if a family member has a really old PC that can't be upgraded it may help and would be free. You can also try Craigslist. You're just after the tower and plenty of (ugly or plain) cases going around if you look hard enough I'm sure you could find something that is a mid-tower or full either one. Not sure of your components, but a mid-tower shouldn't be requiring a low-profile gfx card...

Either way, your computer should be able to play it as mine isn't nearly as modern as yours and I get 40 FPS on low settings.

Honestly, you'd need to upgrade your RAM, GPU, and CPU (in that order).

Typical RAM usage with BF4 running is upwards of 4.5GB (including the background processes within Windows). If you try to persevere with 4GB of RAM, you'll bring the page file into the equation (which is even worse news with a mechanical HDD as opposed to a SSD).

Now, the GTX 650 will have enough vRAM to play at high settings (for reference, at 1600x900, low settings uses 650MB vRAM, medium settings uses 750MB vRAM, high settings uses 850MB vRAM, ultra settings uses 1000MB vRAM, and ultra settings with deferred anti-aliasing disabled uses 850MB vRAM). However, I doubt it will have enough grunt to run BF4 at a playable frame-rate. For comparison, I have an AMD HD 7950 (overclocked to 1070MHz on the core) and it can struggle at times.

Finally, the CPU will bottleneck a decent GPU in BF4 (I know this from experience, as I was using an Intel Core I3 3225 previously and it was bottlenecking the AMD HD 7950), but if you're going to persevere with the GTX 650, it wouldn't be worthwhile to just upgrade the CPU.

Ultimately, upgrade your RAM to 8GB. If the performance isn't to your liking, upgrade the GPU (but keep in mind you'll probably need to abandon the low profile enclosure and upgrade to a higher wattage PSU). If the performance still isn't to your liking, upgrade the CPU to a quad-core. I hope that helps!

P.S. It might be worthwhile just building a new computer from scratch and selling your current computer to cover some of the costs.

Man that's all bogus. Some of what ya'll say is true, but honestly if you just want to PLAY reasonably, without frills, you can still do so without quad cores or 4GB+ of memory.*
