Re: I need a fast upgrade
I can run BF3 with a 5850 on Ultra with no AA too, around 40FPS but once you start recording for 1080p your machine will take a dump. Especially with a dual core. To give you an example, my previous machine was SLI GTX580s with a 3960x, and 64GB of RAM recording to the SSD in my sig. I had troubles on full 64 player maps recording max quality as it would dip into the 50s occasionally which would cause FRAPS to act stupid and drop my FPS. BF4 will barely be any harder on a machine than BF3 (Same BS basically) so whatever you can do with BF3 you can do with BF4. Metro Last Light maxed with 2x SSAA dropped FPS on a GTX680 to around 25, to give you an example with that. That's without recording anything.
A GTX 780 would suffice, no need for anything ridiculous. You just need enough horsepower to cover a solid 60fps while it records at 30fps full size and this will require an SSD to record to due to high amounts of bandwidth being recorded. I would need a site that you would be ordering from to give you any amount of cost.
For CPU, a 3770k, 4770k, or FX8350 would fit the bill, and 8GB of RAM. This would require a new motherboard to accommodate the CPU you want.
