BF3 will run on max settings around 50 fps. Far Cry 3 won't though. Even a 7970 won't run it at 50 fps, you would need a crossfire set-up to achieve that. See the below link for Tom's benchmark article.
Ok Cheers for the help would this be ok then?
XFX AMD Radeon HD 7950 Double D 3GB GDDR5
with CORSAIR 650W ENTHUSIAST SERIES™ TX650 V2-80 PLUS® BRONZE?
Also quick question can you get the boost on the XFX?
Ok thanks so much for the help. so the xfx hd 7950 dd is the best option would you recomend buying from scan or novatech? which is more reliable? Also would you say an SSD is worth the money im not sure whether to get the 120GB KINGSTON V+200 SSD and getting an HDD later or just getting a 1TB WD caviar black WD1002FAEX, Sata 6g/s 64mb cache 7200rpm? Thanks again
As the others have said, the reference AMD cards are annoying. I have the reference 7870 and it is ridiculously loud because I have to crank the fan up or it gets really hot. It sounds like a jet engine.

Do I need branded CPU cooler for gaming? Also, Is it possible to have your OS installed onto an HDD then at a later buy an SSD and then move it over? Thanks
