yeah i thought the game was more stable after the 12/3 update for me, crashed on the first game i tried to play last night. Didn't even try to play another game.
i'm sure you'd probably get around 90-100 but why not roll some ENB and texture mods if you've got that hardware instead of pushing for over 60fps numbers? I can get a solid 60 on max settings with my setup and the default High Res Texture pack that bethesda put out.

kubra dam and lancang dam are nothing alike other than the fact that they both have dams. All the other question, i suggest you start watching levelcap, jackfrags, and rivalxfactor on youtube, or just pick up the game yourself.
was thinking of playing some BF3 just the other day and it so happens i have access to that on PS3 because of PS+. Feel free to add me on PSN and maybe we can play together (play BF3 i mean.) I am also happily married to my wife of several years and we have our 3 children. ;)
Alright, thanks so much for all the input so far!
The considerations I've decided to take from this thread are:
- Ditch the SSD;
- Get a hybrid drive instead of a standard HDD (for about the same price);
- Use savings from step 1 to get either:
- A better, unlocked i5 (or an i7 - not likely because of cost);
- A better graphics card (I'm considering an R9 270x or an Nvidia in the 250$ range);
- Or both, if money allows.
I guess the thing with the CPU is that with next-gen and whatnot, games will finally start to take advantage (and demand) all of those cores.
yeah if you're gonna go with AMD i'd go with a R9 270 or equivalently priced Nvidia 700 series. Also, there's so many iterations of the i5 out there that i'd be leery of suggesting that vs a good i7 or AMD fx 8350 for cheaper.
@oldmanlight: Sweet! I'm in.
I'm on Mountain time.
On a sort of related note. Is there a clan for BF4? I've searched the site, and haven't come across anything...
From what i've read Battlefield 4 is just trying to function as stable at this point. i haven't heard anything further about platoon or clan support for that yet. During the Bad Company 2 and BF3 days @ahmadmetallic was the guy to speak to about that on PC, not sure if he's still gonna do that for BF4.
Edit: scratch that, looks like @akrid has been organizing a GB BF4 PC server as of about a month ago, you can ask him.
Unacceptably a lot, 5 crashes within 10 minutes and not able to reconnect after. Didn't get to complete one match.
I could care less about my level and points but these crashes and connect fails is just wasting my time. It seems the update won't fix these yet and I'm pretty much done with it if this continues.
I get two types of crashes: One is that the game locks up with the audio loop and the other is the BF4.exe stopped working. And there's the Battlelog errors of not being able to connect.
i've only gotten the looping audio freeze/crash maybe twice, but more often it's a sudden and quick crash to desktop usually after some sort of menu interaction (clicking deploy button/changing class or class loadout/etc)
@oldmanlight: you should be using 13.11 beta drivers.
Feature Highlights of The AMD Catalyst 13.11 Beta8 Driver for Windows
- Resolves intermittent crashes experienced with Battlefield 4 on Windows 8 based systems
- Increases AMD CrossFire™ scaling up to an additional 20% for Battlefield 4
i just downloaded and started using those this weekend. Still Crashes to desktop. Performance is great while it's running. but every once in a while it just crashes randomly. Maybe i'll stick to the 32 player servers since those seem to be where the game is most stable.
