  1. Looks good, but you should look at the 8320 it doesn't cost much more and it is fully worth it.

    If you were thinking about upgrading the gpu (760 is a side grade from a 7950) later time please look at getting the 270 not 270x

    use that extra money on the processor,. The 270 or gtx 660. The 270 can easily be overclocked to 7870/270x speeds with almost no effort. It will run arma3 on high with no aa.

    Battlefield loves the cores so the cpu upgrade is pretty important right away.

    Otherwise if you want to hear a yes it will do well, yes it will do well. Nice choices

    BUT 7950 is not a slouch and a 760 is not an upgrade from it.

    Yes, all the parts work and there is enough power

    Yes, but it would be wasted because the 7950 and 760 have very similar performance

    High no problem. At 60FPS. As BF4 is optimized for AMD, another reason not to get a 760

    Arma 3 is a monster on the CPU, expect somewhere in the range of 30FPS on high.

    Also you should get a 8320 instead of the 6300. Its a small price to pay for the amazing improvement youll see. ARMA 3 on high at 45FPS

    How about upgrading to a gtx 770 later on? Could I do that without having to switch my motherboard?

    You would be fine with the MoBo. The Graphics card has an international port, PCI E. Like USB. So all Graphics cards have PCI E, and all motherboards in turn have PCI E as well.

    The Problem is that your PSU is not sufficient enough, you want a 600W 80+ min for a 770.
