    Would that cpu be good for say BF3 and Crysis 3/Farcry 3 and other new games? Would it cause any bottleneck to the video card?

    Heres what Im planing on buying as my new rig

    ASRock 970 EXTREME4 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

    XFX Core Edition FX-787A-CNFC Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB

    COOLER MASTER eXtreme Power 600W PSU

    CORSAIR XMS 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

    AMD FX-6300 Vishera 3.5GHz (4.1GHz Turbo)

    If you don't have the budget to jump to Z77+3570K than that's a good choice if you plan to overclock, if not get h77+3350p.

    Looks well balanced to me. What's wrong with your GTX660Ti though?

    I dont have the budget for an intel rig, Im trying to get a rig that will get me thru the next few years without much upgrading.

    The 660ti is dead due to alcohol poisoning :(

    FX-6300 isn't a bad buy if you can't afford Intel...and the HD7870 is a very nice card if you get one that likes to overclock....not sure I'd give up a 660Ti for it though.

    At OP, the listed parts look good except for the PSU, I have not heard favorable feedback on the CM Extreme Power series. They are generally viewed as somewhat better than generic POS PSU, but well below the likes of Seasonic, Corsair, XFX, etc. I'd look for a good 550W PSU, or higher, from corsair, Seasonic and so forth. For a little more, try getting a PowerColor PCS+ Myst HD7870 XT, it uses the same core as the HD79xx series.

    I def can't recommend Powercolour they are nothing but trouble.

    There are horror stories all over the internet from owners of failing/dying PowerColor GPU's.

    I will second the power supply concern here. I was uneducated on PSU's and picked up a CM Extreme 500W and got bombed in a thread here about 6 months ago lol. Its ok and may get the job done, but is inefficient and doesn't always meet its specs. Check reviews on Hardwaresecrets.com and you'll see what I mean.

    Also, I would say keep that GPU and spend that money towards an FX 8320 or 8350. Even though the 6300 is good, with a better PSU, you can have more juice where you need it :)

    ^ I didn't have any problems with my Powercolor 5750 either, but I have read about people having issues with them. I guess like any company, there are both the good and the bad.

    An Intel i5 or i7 is what you want for gaming...there is nothing better.

    but for a lot less money you can come close FX8320 or FX8350 Intel is quicker but it also costs a lot more

    Thats a matter of opinion anymore. Some i7's perform worse than i5's in gaming due to multi-threading and the new 8 series FX chips beat many i5's for less money. It also looks like Intel is switching sockets (yet again), so everyone with a Sandy or Ivy Bridge is SOL for Haswell.

    My system specs are very similar to yours and so far I haven't had any issues with games. Mostly been playing new Tomb Raider for last couple weeks & it runs beautifully at Ultimate settings.
    Haven't had a chance to run Crysis yet. Waiting on new Bioshock to try something else new.
