radeon 7870 is more expensive than its newer equivalent 270x. Unless you can get it used at a lower price just go for the r9 270x

Hey, It would all depend on your budget, but i'll try my best without it.

The 8320 is only like $20 more than the 6300. If you got the 6300, it would be a waste to upgrade to the 8320 later imo.

For the mobo, these FX are really power hungry!
I'd get the GA-970A-UD3P if you are on a budget and want some a board to overclock a bit and need one for crossfire later. Even if you won't OC, it's only $80 and has 8+2 VRM with heat sinks. Many of the 990FX chipsets will be around $100 and will also be good. M5A97 EVO/PRO would be another good one. Either way, just go by the chart and try to have something at 6+2 or more with heat sinks.

BF4 GPU benchmark

An r9 270 would be good for what you need to get 35+ FPS in BF4. I don't know your budget, but the r7 265 is a good alternative and some can be found for $120 in the US.

For the PSU I would suggest an XFX 550w; it's a great quality PSU. It will give you enough room for a slight overclock if you wanted to try it as well as having room for upgrading to a more powerful card later. You will need a 750w eventually to crossifre

You never mentioned if you needed an operating system or not. :)
