My PC specs are: AMD FX 8350 4.0 ghz
GTX 650 2 gb oc which I overclocked once again
Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3
HyperX Blue 8GB
Corsair PSU 430W

I've seen people play BF3 on ultra with GTX 650 and they were getting 45-60 fps.
I really wonder how my PC will perform in BF3 and possibly BF4 aswell. Also will the GTX 650 bottleneck my CPU? I play on 1600 by 1200 resolution. Any help will be really appreciated

You should be able to max it, maybe with some of the filters turned off at a very playable fps. I'm interested to know whether you've purchased this PC yet or not, as there are a couple of things you could change to make it more capable in-game for the same price.

I ordered it yesterday so I should have it in a couple of days. But you can tell me what I can change because I can buy more parts when I have the parts. For example I'm thinking of getting a new graphics card. I've bought the GTX 650 cin November last year and it was really cheap and amazing for the price. But since this motherboard is capable of crossfiring I've been thinking of getting 2 AMD cards to crossfire. I'm just waiting for BF4 because I wanna see how well the GTX 650 will handle it. IF it runs good I will probably keep it otherwise I'll get some AmD card.

If BF3 is anything to go on, it will be a monster of a game, i have a 670GTx and im going to get at least another 670 so i can play this

I would have gone for the 6300 instead and gotten a better GPU, but you already have the GPU so nevermind.

I would advise against Crossfire, and instead going with a strong single GPU such as a 760, 770, 7950 or 7970.

I play at 1600 by 1200. And I wanna play at Ultra. But I don't really care about Antialiasing and stuff like that. I can probably just turn that off. I just want a playable frame rate. I've been comparing other resolutions to 1600 by 1200 and there is mostly 2-3 fps difference between 1024 by 786.

I looked up GTX 760 and they have a decent price around 400 dollars. But there is a lot a different models. There is:
MSI, EVGA, Gainward, Zotac and ASUS. So which one do you recommend?

If you're speaking of US dollars, then the 760 is $250 and the 770 is $400 - apologies if not.

But I would go for the EVGA version, definitely, as it has warranty which is second to none and it's cooler is excellent, allowing for a great overclock - just ensure you get the ACX cooler, as the blower-style cooler isn't as good at cooling. :)

Here in Sweden the 760 costs around 400 dollars and the 770 roughly 500 dollars. I just found a GTX 670 EVGA 4 GB for around 420 dollars.

If you've found a 670, especially as it's 4gb, then I'd go for that! :)

Thanks for the help! I will try getting the most out of the GTX 650 until I buy a GTX 760!
