Battlefield 4 Budget Build Performance

Battlefield 4 Budget Builds



As this is a gaming system we skipped the majority of CPU intensive tests as they are rather meaningless in this case. Benchmarks such as AIDA64, SiSoft Sandra, wPrime, and the numerous rendering and transcoding benchmarks we normally run aren't really applicable to a system like this since the chances are Financial Analysis benchmarks from Sandra, and mathematical calculations in wPrime won't be the sort of thing you'd be using a budget gaming PC for. However, we did still run a few such as PCMark and Cinebench in order to get an idea of the CPU's performance.

It's worth noting that we didn't optimise the system in any way. Of course, with a system like this you would be able to increase the GPU clocks in order to attain a little more performance. However, since some people may be uncomfortable overclocking the system themselves, we didn't think it would be right to include overclocked results in our testing.

Our CPU-z and GPU-z screenshots below show the clock speeds that the system runs at.

How much do you need to spend to get a decent gaming rig? With the help of PCSpecialist, we've put together a great rig for an impressive price.

My steam box/LAN box was going to be an itx system for around the same price and its amazing how much more expensive the ITX AMD motherboards are. I had to really scale down the graphics (to a 650ti) and get a tiny SSD in order to stay in budget. All the good motherboards cost more than the cpu :l. Thats the issue with cheap OCable cpus I guess :s. In the end I also had to settle with this as a build. It was an easy sell though .

Interesting how surprisingly good the pentiums are at gaming. I really was expecting it to struggle alot more than it did. I wouldn't want a pentium for games like Star Citizen though.Quote

Going to show my brother in law this before he gets a console, nothing wrong with a console but he's turning what was once a powerful rig of a Core 2 Duo, Asus P5B Deluxe, 8GB RAM and a 4850 into a bit of a NAS as his NAS box is broke, and will get a console as well.

Keep telling him to join these forums and look at some of the smaller builds.

Edit: Okay there is something not right if my rig is only doing 20fps with Arkham Origins!Quote
