  • A better CPU + Motherboard
  • A newer cheaper equally performing RAM
  • A stronger GPU
  • OS: Trust me, you won't benefit anything for gaming from the professional version.

Brilliant thanks mate, I know it's not a perfect science but would this run BF4 on ultra with decent frame rate ? If so thanks for designing my first pc I will name it after you :) Cheers

On 1080p? Yes it would. Specifically it can do Battlefield 4 - 1920x1080 - Ultra Quality at 59-62 FPS.
