Hahaha nah. That would be a pretty lobsided build unless its primary purpose involved cpu and ram intensive work. Its my daily machine with the old 6670 review sample from techgage. It provided a lack of bottlenecks and only shows that the card in theory can play BF3.
The system the user is looking at has a 6770 which despite being decent I would never had recomended for BF3 in the past. The user is a console gamer and generally unknowledgable in pc components. He is in europe and wants a prebuilt with os cheap as possible. Some of the builds he originally looked at were wildly wrong or indesirable. From triple core Llano to an 8 thread FX but only a 7450.
Cant tell you why he was looking at amd only. But what he settled on should do well enough for the son of a console gamer. FX 4100 which may dampen things a bit but should compare well with an i3. A 6770 which will out perform the 6670 providing a decent balance. Minimal BF3 rig but other games will do well.
