Alright so, the budget that i've got here is 300 Euros. The questions that i have are:

  1. I would go with this card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814162143&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-_-pla-_-Desktop+Graphics+Cards-_-N82E16814162143&gclid=CMDr7dGIjboCFVFp7AodAQwAXw

    Will definitely get above 25 fps on Planet Side 2. If you want to spend a little less as this is at the max of your budget, I would go with a 760.

    That is a mighty card. But what worries me: wouldn't the card be bottlenecked severely by the CPU? Wouldn't the power supply be too weak for it?

    Your power supply is fine for it, but yes it might bottleneck it, but im not sure.
