No matter which one you get your going to have to upgrade the graphics card for bf3. If your willing to try building your own you could do way better than any of those for the price but its up to you.

If your going to get one of the used ones i would go for the last one and get this if you can afford it

Yes its expensive but playing bf3 on high is going to take very good graphics card.

Let me know if you would be willing to try building your own and i can put one together for you.
