Motherboard: [CrossFireX] GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3 AMD 970 Chipset Socket AM3+ ATX Mainboard w / Touch Bios,
Ultra Durable 2, On/Off Charge, 7.1 Audio, GbLAN, USB3.0, SATA-III RAID, 2 Gen2 PCIe X16, 3 PCIe X1 & 2 PCI

Memory: 8GB (4GBx2) DDR3/1866MHz Dual Channel Memory (Corsair XMS)

It's okay, but the FX-6100 sucks for gaming. You're better off with a 4300 or a 6300.

You'll have to be more specific on what series line your RAM is.

Video card is great.

If you already bought these components then you should get around 50 or so on high-ultra settings. If you haven't bought these components, then I suggest you change some things. First, I would get the new piledriver processor, which would be the 6300.
Second, I would drop your RAM down to 1600 because 1866 is literally, just a waste, you won't notice. ARES or Vengeance is good. XMS isn't quite on par.
Third, BF3 favors Nvidia cards, so the 660 would be a better choice for you.

^Actually, RAM frequency makes a bit of a difference on AMD systems. :)

If you plan on going AMD, I'd recommend getting the FX-6300 It has better core per core performance, and it uses less energy.

RAM isn't compatible. Get 1600 instead. Corsair Vengeance 8GB

Also, it sounds like you copied/pasted from one of those custom configurators. Either from iBuyPower or CyberPowerPC. Believe me, you could build this yourself and save $200 +/- A few bucks.
