    Your CPU should do absolutely fine for those games. You may run into issues with Battlefield 3 on Multiplayer, but for Single Player, you should be fine.

    But keep in mind, even on Multiplayer, you'll still be able to achieve playable frame rates anyway, so nothing to worry about.

    Also, I suggest you invest $10 more and get the 6870 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102948

    Okay thanks for that. What's the big difference between the 6850 and 6870, just more speed probably? But for $10, cant really go wrong either way!

    Yeah, there isn't much difference besides power draw and performance :) here's a little chart -
