I assume you are in the US?
If so this is one of the cheapest decent gaming rigs you can get. It is over budget but you get a much better price:p erformance ratio if you save up a bit more.

That should be able to run BF3/4 on medium to high settings at 30+ fps, maybe around 60 if you have lower settings.

BF3 = High / Ultra
BF4 = High - Migh-Mid
Crysis 1 + 2 Will run well and 3 may have to run in low-mid
No idea about planetside or loadout.
DayZ / ARMA II will run in high-ish (I play DayZ in medium on my GTX 285)

Try something like this:
AMD Athlon II X4 760k http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 90$
ASUS A88X-PLUS: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 109$
ASUS GTX 650 Ti:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 130$
EVGA 500w PSU: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DGHKK7M/?tag=pcpapi-20 51$
WD HDD 7200 RPM 1 TB: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 60$
G.SKILL ripjaw 2x2 GB: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 48$
Total cost: 488$

Or AMD FX-6300: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 120$
ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 72$
ASUS GTX 650 Ti:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 130$
EVGA 500w PSU: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DGHKK7M/?tag=pcpapi-20 51$
WD HDD 7200 RPM 1 TB: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 60$
G.SKILL ripjaw 2x2 GB: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 48$

Total cost: 487$

Note that the FX-6300 > Athlon ii x4 760k
But the FM2+/FM2 motherboard has a better upgrade path if AMD was to release Kaveri Athlon processors like they did with Richland.
