Hi, I don't have a very good understanding of PC's but I'd like to get into PC gaming. I would like to know if these components put together be enough to run Battlefield 4. Any help would be appreciated because I am very unsure of what to do. I have left out windows software but I do acknowledge that I'm going to have to buy that too as well as a case. I have a disk drive, gpu, ram (2x4gb), 500gb hdd, and an 15 cpu. Do I need more things for a gaming pc or is that it? Here are the minimum requirements of battlefield 4: click here Thanks in advance.

Here are the links to the components: click here am aware that I don;t have a case and any software such as windows 8. I'd just like to know if these parts are compatable with each other and work well with battlefield 4. I have a budget of around £500 minus the case, monitor and windows 8 software so please keep that in mind when suggesting any changes. Thanks for any help.

Sadly most of your links are not working , so I have no idea what price these parts are . Firstly tho , I would recommend buying your MoBo , RAM , CPU and cooler as a bundle from one supplier , it will then be a matched , and tested bundle . You have very fast RAM , but very old tech GPU . Drop ram to click here . Change your GPU to something a little more upto date , such as click here . you don't list a CPU cooler either . And I would recommend uprating your PSU to something a little more powerful , but stick to a major brand don't be tempted by cheaper makes , they are generally quite inferior . Check out Scans overclocked ivy bridge i5 bundle , it is possibly a little more than you wanted to pay , but that is fully tested and safely overclocked . good luck .
