Ok guys. I am planning to build a system(of course a PC)and I really wanth to know is it worth it, I want to hear your oppinions.
CPU-AMD Athlon X4 760K
MB-MSI A88XM E35
GPU-MSI R7 260X
RAM-Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3 1600Mhz
HDD-500GB WD Caviar Blue
PSU-Corsair CX430
Case-I am still thinking about it, maybe Cooler Master K280
I am curious are these parts all compatible and can I run Battlefield 3 on ultra with this?
Thanks guys. ;)

Well you will not get a smooth 60 FPS on Ultra in BF3 with this system. So I would say no you cannot run it on ultra since at the 1080p realm the card averages above 30FPS on ultra.

If you want a system to run BF3/4 on ultra, might we here your budget so we could help you pick out a better parts list?

Check out TechSpot's R7 260X benchmark >>here<<. As you can see the 260X struggles on BF3 even at only Very High. I would recommend at least an R7 265 or an nVidia GTX 750Ti for the best performance in the <$200 range of GPUs.

If you tweak your settings well enough, you can easily achieve a good balance between performance and beauty. I recommend running textures and mesh quality on very high or ultra (will probably struggle to reach this) and everything else on low. That would make the game look great while also not soaking up resources.

Well I am thinking of getting a 750 Ti or even R9 270X. Thanks

Right now, theres a sale on the HD 7870's on newegg and amazon that drops them below the R9 270X price point. They are running at 190 and below compared to the +200 price points of the 270X. The R9 270X is just a rebranded HD 7870 so I would get that if I were you.

Yeah the 270X and 265 would be better choices over the 750Ti. But if you like low power consumption and nVidia, go with the 750Ti.
