Will this PC run games like Planetside 2 and BF4 on ultra at, above, or close to 60 FPS? Thanks!

Most likely ultra with some high settings with 50 fps, If you upgrade to a r9 290, then you will probably get 60 fps on ultra with most aliasing

I'll see where the prices go. I thought the 280x was able to run on ultra...

If I chose a different PSU, the. I could also eventually crossfire it...

at 1080p, most likely. if you overclock you could do 1440p too (most likely). but check benchmarks and reviews (like linus tech tips)

I'm pretty sure a 280X can run most games at Ultra, so yeah it'll run most modern games on Ultra,

Thanks. I could crossfire it in the future if I choose a beefier PSU
