  1. I'm not sure but I don't think it can run it

    for psu if you want to go cheap but good quality

    corsair CX600 600W is your best bet.

    6950 if you really want one but if you can grab this 7850/7870 whichever is cheaper go with that, it's much much better

    if you already got that psu then it should run. Intel cpu alone won't take a lot of power and you don't have gpu yet.

    I 100% agree with Tavo_Nova that an AMD 7850 is the way to go over the 6950! I only picked the BF3 chart because the game is so popular right now, you can scroll through the rest of the review here: http://www.guru3d.com/article/amd-radeon-hd-7850-and-7870-review/1

    (Spoiler) The 7850 beats the 6950, and it uses less power!! :)
