FOR 500 DOLLARS you could probs play BF3 on medium no problem at 1920x1080, guessing. check out youtube.com/razethew0rld 's builds, he does some really good ones for the money. if you could fit a 7850 or 7870 in there you could play high-ultra but i kinda doubt it

Not the best budget to play BF3 on. But it will work.

It's a little over your budget.

edit: changed the mother board. You can further reduce the cost by getting a 500gb HDD but won't make much difference.
