I want an CPU that can handle arma 3 and battlefield 4. I have a 530W psu and a Radeon HD 7870. Which one? How would each compare to my current AMD phenom II X4 965 BE?

4670K is faster overall. On some games like ARMA3, the difference is minimal:-

On other games, the difference is quite significant:-

Although AMD has more cores, in ARMA 3 they don't scale very well over 4C despite being a "CPU heavy" game. Here's a "CPU load %" for ARMA 3 for both Intel & AMD (4670K roughly = i7 2600K):-

Battlefield 4 isn't out yet, but if it's like Battlefield 3 and it differs from one area to another, the Intel would be very similar on very heavily threaded maps, but faster vs the FX8350 on less heavily threaded maps.
