That should get the job done on medium settings, depending on your resolution.

For 450 that is essentially as good as you will get, if you have a larger budget tell us so we can help. Personally I am not a huge fan of EVGA PSUs (I like brands like corsair a lot) so if you can find one for a similar price I would switch.

You should be able to play all those games, but especially on farcry (I'm assuming 3) and bf3 expect closer (if not at ) the low settings with relatively mid range fps. The CPU is a pretty big bottleneck on the system. Normall for gaming I strongly encourage going for a better graphics card, but the cpu here will more then likely bottle neck it. It may be worth looking into and older gen graphics card if you can find one (maybe a 7750/70) and spending a little extra on the cpu.

Again throw us a budget and we will gladly help you out!

I originally had the fx6300 and a gtx 650 or an hd 7770. Would this be better than the 760k and the 260x?? And my budget is $450-$460

I recently had the FX-6300 and GTX 650 on a Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 Rev. 4.0 Mobo, and i was playing Battlefield 4 on medium at ~60fps +/-5% at 1080P.
I would recommend the FX over the Athlon personally.

That may entail a new MOBO choice though.

Yes because the Athlon is fm2 and the FX is am3. So I also had another motherboard picked out.....
