500W is enough for ONE card. ONE card however may not max out BF3 adequately, not sure with your low resolution.

That CPU is a great match for the 7850 and BF3.

latest drivers and at resolution slightly higher than yours (about 20% more pixels than1440x900) ultra 4xAA
assuming scaling with pixel count you avg fps with same settings would be 63fps (just an assumption, probably a bit off)
if you tone down AA or drop to High settings you should be able to hit quite a bit than 60fps avg

A decent 600W psu can be enough for crossfire as long as you don't do an extreme OC but I doubt it with a 500W
what brand is your PUS and what is the model?

Dunno how you gonna fit all this into your budget
970 chipset board will cost an additional $10 over the current amd builds I have posted

Dropping to a 7850 1gb puts you closer into budget (but crossfire ability is hampered due to vram issues in the future)

If you disable MSAA on BF3, the 7850 can run it on Ultra just fine at very high fps. I was gaming tonight at 1920x1080 and getting 50-90fps depending on complexity of the map (in multiplayer). With MSAA on, you should still be able to get 50fps at 1440x900 as that's a pretty low res.

MSAA smooths out some textures, but it also puts a foggy look over everything. I actually like it better without.

I can't keep the names straight, I thought it was the 7870 LE. Either way, I agree with the "Tahiti" based 7870 chip and it only asks for a 500W psu so not bad.
