Hi so here is my system :

AMD Phenom x6 1100T @ 3.6 Ghz - Coolermaster 212+ Evo
Nvidia Gefroce GTX 560 TI
4 GB DDR3 RAM @ 1333 Mhz


I would like to run Battlefield 3 on ultra settings for a stable 60 fps and future games.
And each part under 300€
(( like GPU for 300-350 € ; CPU 300-350 € )) and so on.

More about : upgrade

i don't know what the conversion is, but you can get an HD 7950 for $300 online. I'd keep the CPU you have for now, BF3 is a GPU bound game. Add an extra 4GB of RAM and you're golden.

It will most certainly make your pc better to get a better GPU. I can guarantee it. And no it's not always a mistake to buy an AMD processor lol, I have one and it suits me fine. Granted, in a perfect world I would own an i7-3770k right now, but is it worth it to buy a new motherboard, a new copy of Windows, AND a new CPU? nope, not even close. That'd be $500 minimum. If you really want a new CPU, then I would buy an HD 7950/70 or GTX 670/80 now, and then wait for Haswell to come out in March.
