    is this a good enough step up to play battle field 4 at a high level?
    low on cash but this card I found seems to have what I need plus maybe a few yrs in it before a upgrade is needed. any input would be appreciated.
    reason I ask is I have a day to cancel and get something else but I am not real good with computers. I am running a phenom quad core with 4 gigs of ram on win 7 ultimate and a 600 watt power supply and 1t hard drive

    OH AND MY MOTHERBOARD IS A GA-MA785GM-US2H

    This should answer your question. The GTX 660 has 30FPS with ultra quality at 1680x1050. Lowering the quality settings to high, raised the frame rate to nearly 50FPS.

    Final Thought:
    Side note:
    Another improvement would be to get 8GB memory. In my opinion 4GB is boarder-line to being sufficient.

    But keep in mind though, the recent drivers have made improvements to BF4 improvement and therefore could allow him to play at high @ 60 FPS.

    But yeah, +1 for Clifford's thoughts on the RAM since you are going to need 8GB of system RAM (not GPU VRAM) to run higher quality textures in any game.
