You should upgrade that PSU. The recommended watts for the 7870 is 500w.

Here is a nice PSU that can handle your specs: http://bit.ly/XPD2IR

I hope you didn't just choose a generic 500W PSU. This pretty much says it all.

Anyway you'll probably want to overclock that CPU. At 1080p, you'd struggle to maintain 60 FPS in BF3 on Ultra. My old GTX 480 gave me 50-60 FPS usually, with occasional drops to the 40s when a lot of stuff was happening on screen at once, in 64 player servers.
