Hey all, I'm not usually a gamer but saw the battlefield 4 trailer and.. wow.

At home I have this computer:
macpro 1,1 dual core intel xeon 2.66ghz 10gb ram
nvideo geforce 7300 gt 256mb
runs lion

What all would I need to do to get it to run battlefield 4 maxed out via bootcamp?

I see the system requirements here Battlefield 4 system requirements I know very little about computers (lol) .. can I upgrade the processor and graphics card in a mac pro 1,1? If so, what's compatible with mac pro 1,1 and what should I purchase and where can I get them online? Ideally would not want to go over 600usd if possible...


Cheers,
V

With a $600 budget, you need to just get a PS4 or the new Xbox.

Well the CPU's are not i5's and the graphics card is too old and too slow.

Do as suggested and run it on PS4 or an Xbox.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

There is no CPU upgrade that will work on the system board to get you up to the level of the minimum i5 requirements.
