Your overall computer will be fine. I would upgrade your graphics card if you want to play anything other than medium and some high at 1080p. (i'm finally going to replace mine this black friday... 560ti for cheap? frys here we gooo).
Other than that, hold off a complete system upgrade till you get BF3.
