For BF3 it ranges from 58-30 FPS depending on your resolution and quality you put the settings at. For MW3 about 81 FPS, not too much lower depending on your settings and resolution.

Also a quality 500 watt PSU will be perfect for this setup.

Either than that everything is fine!

The reason I got a 750w was so i could xfire later will that work for that? Is the BF3 benchmark in campaign and if so is that different then multiplayer?

Is the GPU I picked good?

The gpu you picked is a good one, xfiring it will make it better. The fps will differ but not by much. You may have to go down a few notches on your setting to get above playable fps (30). I personally like to go with 40+. Yes, the 750 watt psu in your case is fine. By the wy if you have money right now or 2 6870s get a single better card. I know you said you'd get it later, but I'm just saying. Good pick in card, good luck!
