    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:performance 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)
  5. ok thanks hopefully i wont be dissapointed
  6. Try something like this:
    AMD Athlon II X4 760k http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113348 90$
    ASUS A88X-PLUS: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813132054 109$
    ASUS GTX 650 Ti:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121686 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=N82E16822236339 60$
    G.SKILL ripjaw 2x2 GB: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231277 48$
    Total cost: 488$

    Or AMD FX-6300: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113286 120$
    ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813132026 72$
    ASUS GTX 650 Ti:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121686 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=N82E16822236339 60$
    G.SKILL ripjaw 2x2 GB: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231277 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.
