    The cards which will be shipped with BF4 will be able to run BF4 on highest setting? Or not necessarily?

    I have the HD 6950, just right for BF3 but certainly not enough for BF4.

      An HD 6950 will easily be enough for Battlefield 4.

        A 3 year old GPU? You might as well be cannon fodder with the lag and fps baggage you are carrying around.

    I have a 6990 and wanted an excuse to upgrade. I can still get a decent price for my card and stay ahead of the curve.

      Dude, no the 7770 will not get you the best probably 720p at low settings with 50fps, but i mean what are you getting on bf3, then take away maybe 5-10 frames

      and dude with the phenom II x6 . just get a 760, or go intel or both

    I have intel I5 3570k 3.4 GHZ processor. 8 gigs of fast RAM. Enough hardrive space. Does anyone know what would bet he cheapest graphics card from AMD would be to get full ultra performance? I can’t seem to get a straight answer. I just wanna play ultra settings because i’m a go big or go home kind of guy.

      “I have an HD 7770 2gb , an i3-3240 and 8gb of RAM….Can i run BF4?”

      yes you can run the BF4 in that specs, but, expect that you have a low fps. if you can upgrade your HD 7770 2gb to 7950, it would run smoothly.
