Sorry for the delay...I fell asleep at the wheel again :D

I won't comment on a build for BF4, but I do know for sure that running BF3 on high setting without too much AA doesn't actually require expensive hardware anymore unless you have a giant monitor with high resolution, multiple monitors for 2d/3d surround or a 1080p monitor with 120Hz refresh rate and you intend to play with vsync on or otherwise hope to acheive 120 fps minimum.

I can build out a fast 'n cheap part list for playing BF3 but it would be helpful to know whether or not you need a complete system or just the case with internal parts? What screen resolution will you play at? Do you need an Operating System or not? Optical drive or do you install the OS with a USB drive that you already have?

Lastly, how much money do you have for this build?

I would like to play at 1080p. I just want to make the case and internal parts.

I still don't know what your budget is...so I picked out a list that is similiar to my own build with a few adjustments. This system will play BF3 with all the eye candy, can be overclocked and costs ~$1000.00

Because you want fast and cheap that means you don't get the latest greatest platform. You get last years platform with current gen GPU. No difference for gamers, the only real difference is lower price ;)
