well your PSU, ur ram, and mobo seam not bad but the ECS is not a well known company and it not the best but the graphics card i would suggest a radeon 6850 or gtx 560 ti? the processer i5 2500k/i3 2100 will cost you $400+ soo

(Don't buy from Newegg, I only linked them so you can see what parts I'm talking about. Also, I converted USD to Euros, so you can see how many euros it would be.)
With that many Euros you can do pretty good.

For Motherboard get: - 37 Euros
Biostar H61 MoBo (No overclocking on this, or crossfire/sli, but it's cheap, which you need for good video card)

i5 2400 3.1GHz Quad Core - 142 Euros

PNY Optima 8GB (4 x 2GB) - 32 Euros

Video Card:
Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 - 179 Euros

Total: About 390 Euros.

This should definitely be able to run it BF3 on high.

No problem, hope you like whatever you choose to do.

I just found this system requirements too, this should be able to run it on high, it fits the recommended system requirements exactly, but with 4 extra GB of RAM.
