  2. For BF3 if you really want to turn up the eye candy, I'd try to get a little bit more in the budget for a stronger video card than a 7770, yea it will do the trick, but if you can get some more umph from something like a 7850 or a GTX 570, or even an older GTX 480 I would do so. Other than that, Jerred's build gives you a real nice running start.
