What do you think of these builds?

I'm looking to max out in BattleField 3 mostly.

I did my research and came up with these builds.
Please give me your opinion and advice, first time doing this.
I really want to stay under $700 or around it.
Thank you for your time.

More about what builds
  1. I would go with a 7970 or 7950, and if you don't want to oc, then don't get a 3570k. Also look into getting a 4300, it won't be a noticeable decrease
  2. 7970 or 7950? Doesn't GTX get better fps in bf3?
    Thank you for your opinion!
  3. It is honestly hard to determine which brand gets better fps in BF3 at this point. Don't try to site frame rates from before October. I saw a review for 12.11 that show the 7970 or 7870 (I forgot which one), was getting something like a 10 or 15 fps boost. But then I heard that nVidia was increased their FPS again with drivers. AMD is still better in most games for the price.
  4. gtx 660 ti around the same price 7950 and it's a lil better. So I should also get a fx-4300?
