So I'm about to order all the parts for my new build and was originally gonna get a 670, but after going over my budget, that would be pushing it and I still at least wanted to get bf3 after buying all the parts.
So my question is what kind of fps could I expect if i play bf3 on medium settings? I really don't see a point in playing ultra vs medium as it just looked like additional lighting and AA while at my friends house.

More about : 7870

Well the price difference between the 670 and 7870 is roughly $40 depending on which model you go with of course - I know you stated you went over budget and at this point trying to shave off a few dollars helps. But specially for BF3 which favors Nvidia cards the 670 is a beast of a card and at least to me would justify the extra $40 +/-.

See the comparison here - 670 vs 7870: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/548?vs=598

On that note, as far as my personal experience with the 7870, I get around 35-60fps depending on the map ( Back to Karkand maps yield lower FPS across the board) running on High with the exception of Textures set to Ultra, 2xMSAA, Anti-aliasing Post set to low, Motion blur off, Anisotropic Filter set to 4x and Ambient Occlusion set to HBAO running it on a 1650x1050 monitor.

well i also own the 7870.. and personally i am kicking myself for not waiting for the 670....

And if BF3 670 (being an nvidia optimised game) is what you want.. well the answer is clear the 670
