pc gear for battlefield 3 / 4 ,other games?

Hi,so i'm building a new gaming rig,here's what i came up with -
CPU - amd fx 6300
VGA - gtx 660 twin frozr III oc / or 7870 twin frozr,i don't like sapphire,somehow in 7870 series the sapphire is cheapest ...
PSU - chieften 650W
MB - M5A97 R2.0: Asus, 970, DualDDR3-1866, SATA3, RAID, GBLAN, ATX
RAM - DDR3 Crucial Ballistix 8GB (2x4GB) 1600MHz CL9 1.5V
HDD - WD Blue 3.5'' 1TB SATA3 7200RPM 64MB
CASE - Cooler Master K(night) 350, Midl tower, black
I think i won't be able to sprout in fx 8350 in my build,
My limit is 795$,well where i live the price's are a bit different,i heard that games will be running better from now on on AMD cards ... so i really can't make my mind at this moment,any help will be appreciate,thanks :)

  1. What resolution do you plan on playing at? I would definitely recommend a dfferent psu. Stick to better brands; Corsair, Seasonic, XFX, PCP&C, Antec, etc. You should get a GTX 760 instead of a 7870. It only costs a little more and is quite a bit more powerful.

    Well my monitor's resolution is 1680x1050 , i can't find any gtx 760 from where i live only gtx 770 and the price is 2x more then for example sapphire radeion 7870 ghz edition... so i really won't be buying that that ( gtx 760/770) SO i'm thinking of 660 atm or the 7870 i don't know yet...

    Ooops... found a gigabyte gtx 760 2 gb oc for a 60$ bucks more then gtx 660 twin frozr,should i take it? LOL just saw that gtx 760 has 3 fans :D Don't know really what to do,maybe my cpu will bottleneck the gpu
  4. If you can afford it then the 760 is quite a bit more powerful. Given your somewhat low resoultion you may be happy with just a 7870. It's up to you as to what you want to spend.
