I really don't know much about PCs, but a decent one was given to me as a christmas gift....based off the specs can I play BF4?

Intel (R) Core(TM) i7-3770K CPU @ 3.50GHz

32GB RAM

64 bit Operating System, x64-based processor

AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series aprox mem- 17110 MB

if this won't run, what should I do to make it run bf4 and other games?

Everything looks good but that video card might struggle to run it on best settings.

Give it a go anyway and see how it runs.

That's a very nice PC to be given as a gift. As is, you should be able to run it just fine. If you ever upgrade that videocard, you'll have a sweet rig on your hands for the future ;)

yup, you can play it on medium graphics.

Medium should run perfect.

What 77xx card you have. If its 7770 then 1080p and medium settings ( heck even a couple settings on high could be a go if you aim for 30fps minimum )

7750 though at 1080p above low settings will struggle

Imo you are making your CPU dis justice by not using it with a much better gpu

@adamosmaki: What would you suggest as a GPU? I have not put a dime into the rig, so I'd be down with some upgrades.

Tell us how much you want to spend first.

Nvidia:

GTX 760

- $250-260

GTX 770

- $340-370

GTX 780

- $530-550

GTX 780 TI

- $700-$730

GTX 690

- $1000

Radeon:

R9 270

- $180-200

R9 270X

- $200-240

R9 280X

- $420-$440

R9 290

- $530

Personally, I would buy Nvidia if I were you but if you have the money for R9 290 GET IT!!

Don't underestimate any of these GPUs. Even GTX 760 is more beast then what a PS4 or Xbox One use.

If you don't want to / don't have a lot to spend GTX 760 or R9 270X will still run games beautiful!

I have GTX 760 and I personally love it and can not complain with this price.

The Gpu's listed by insane_metalist are all great options in their respective price bracket . Minimum i would go nowdays will be an r9 270 if you have a limited budget ( or an nvidia 660ti or AMD 7870 which more or less all 3 fall in the same performance bracket )
