I'm building a gaming PC and I was wondering if it could run games like BF3, BF4 and Far Cry 3 at ultra settings, here's my config:
-Motherboard: MSI LGA1155/Intel B75/DDR3/SATA3
-CPU: AMD FX 6100 6-Core
-RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) 1600 MHz

I'm hesitating between two video cards

1) EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti
2) XFXAMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB

Which one whould I pick? Also will a power supply of 650 watt be enough to support this config?

Dude, heads up. Did you buy these parts already? 'cuz it's not going to work since the motherboard and the CPU is incompatible, you've chosen an AMD processor but an Intel mobo. As for the card, there's no contest if you want the best performance, the 7870 will destroy the GTX 650 ti and would easily max out most games in 1080p.

That motherboard is for intel sockets, not AMD ones. Might wanna change that. But the 7870 IMO is better than the 650 ti.

You need to make sure your motherboard is one for AMD chips. You speced an Intel motherboard.

Just compare the gpu boards on newegg, the 650ti has far better ratings. And is cheaper. Actually, I'd get the GTX 660 for it is the same price as the 7870.

That processor is performing even worse than two generation older i3. And according various souces even the top of the line AMD FX 8350 is performance wise between intel i3 and i5 in Battlefield. So for a decent machine I'd get an i5, if I could get my hands on one :D 



ps: Haswell performance incerases 7-26% over Sandy Bridge /most notable performances are in the multi-threaded area/
