I wouldnt recommend either. The HD7870, HD7950 and HD7970 are all much better options in the same price range.
Radeon 7540D / Radeon 7560D (A.K.A. AMD A6 and A8 series APU.)
AMD Radeon HD 7970 3GB 16X PCIe 3.0 VS. GTX 680

7970 or 7950. You might also want to overclock your processor to ensure you get the full performance out of the game and hardware.

For BF3 in that resolution you will be better off getting a 680 or 7970.

Just as a hint, bumping is illegal, and the moderators will come and find you, and get you lol.
BF3 at max settings at that resolution would entail a much more powerful graphics card than that. I would go with a 7970 or the 680 is you can find it.
