Yes but depending on who you order it from they wouldn't just put it together unless you payed for that service or you could learn and have a go at doing it your self, There is plenty of resources such as how to's, videos and us to help and it would save some money..

And installing a closed loop water cooling system is as easy as installing a normal air cooler.

It's the custom ones that are the pain.

where i am ordering it from they put it together as part of the service and i have priced up all the parts separately and it works out that it will only cost me about 10 more to have them fit it all.

Either one of those will handle BF4 but I'd go for the 770..
