I am currently live in Canada, and I am wanting to get your help on a $1000 dollar BF3 Build. I am wanting this PC to be able to run it at Ultra, with over 30 FPS...

The main thing I am wanting here, is for the parts ordered to be shipped to my doorstep, if possible. Meaning I don't have to drive all the way out to the states for pick-up type orders.

Also, when I say $1000, I mean for ALL parts. (Example: Power supply, Video card, Memory, CPU, Case, the whole build)

Quick responses would be GREAT!

Approximate buying date: Sometime this week.

Do you need a monitor, keyboard, OS, etc.?

Merueth, do you think a 7850 is good enough? What would the next level up from a 7850 be?

I'm wanting to have just a single Video Card. As far as overclocking, and Crossfire.. I really am not 100% sure..

IMO, the only justifiable increase is the GTX 670 at $400, which would get 60 FPS. The 7850 would get around 35 FPS, but a decent overclock would bring it up to 45 FPS. The 7870 gets around 40 FPS, with that overclock bringing it up to 50. The Radeon cards have a lot of trouble with AA, which is why they struggle so much at Ultra. You can also consider the GTX 570, which sits between the 7870 and the 7850, and gets around 40 FPS, but doesn't have as much overclocking headroom as the 78xx cards.
