    More GPU. The G840 is plenty of CPU for games, go with it and the 660. Upgrading to the i3 would only get you a few FPS. The upgrade to 660 would be much more noticeable.

    ^This.
  3. I bet someone will soon post "Ohh, but what about BF3 MP!!! And Skyrim!!! You need an i7-3960X at 6GHz!!!" :P
  4. Can I play bf3 with this rig? not ultra.high-med.
    How many FPS will I get in MOHW/BF3 SP with this rig?
  5. Have you considered the fx4300 with a GTX 660 or a 7850? That might just be the sweet spot in your situation
  6. It is over my budget
  7. At 1080p stock the 660 gets ~50 fps at with max settings and 4xAA in BF3. Same settings in Crysis gets ~40 fps. Using High-Med you'll get more FPS obviously. Get a factory overclocked card with dual fans, usually not much more expensive than stock and you'll get a few more FPS again.
  8. For the haters that say you need an i3, Toms did a test of CPUs and found the differnece between the i3 and G860 was 1-2 FPS.
