Check out my sig. Pretty similar just an extra 100mhz of cpu clock and the 7770 is about 25% better. I run most of my games on high. You should be fine on medium. Besides even low settings on BF3@1080p look better than a console xD. Directx 11 rocks.

and you'll struggle on maps with many players in small areas because of your processor.

He shouldn't really. Some one gave numbers for G620: the CPU usage was at 100% constantly, but he would get stable 45-55 fps at 64 player maps.

So you're saying I'll have no issues with BF3 on med settings? Also, how long do you believe this computer (or Blakes) will last with performance before I build another PC?

I'd say it would be around 3-4 years before it will start not be able to play new games on the lowest settings.

I struggled with a Q9550 (w/6GB ram) until I shut down all extraneous processes, it was little stutters and stalls, but only only on 64player tdm, this was with a GTX470, it went away when i upgraded to a 3570k through sysprep so the software was all the same. On smaller maps or less densely populated maps there was no problem. CPU usage was 95-100%.

from an FPS standpoint I was getting either 55-60 (med ish settings) or 0 for short periods of time.

So, from what I'm seeing I should ditch the rig I have planned now and go with blakes? I don't care if it's his or not all I care about is performance.

the GXXX will get you a good starting system, if you choose the mobo so it can take a better 1155 cpu then you'll be able to upgrade at some point.

Well, HD 7770 is around 20% faster than HD 7750 and costs within 5% of it. It's sure worth it. Other than that, your rigs are identical.
