Are these good specs for gaming?

Question by Nicholas Bohaenko: Are these good specs for gaming?

It is to play games such battlefied 3 and black ops 2 when it comes out.
This are the main games, also, it will be played on a 1920×1080 monitor.

Do you think I can play does games like a 7950 would play with a 7870 because the cost difference is $ 100.

Budget was $ 700, but this is $ 740 at newegg.ca

A thought about the GTX 660Ti, but I don’t like its low memory bandwidth. only 192bit while the 7950 is 384bit, that is double. I heard in tomshardware that the 192bit on the GTX 660ti is gonna hurt laying BF3 with AA on.
I don’t know why I can’t select a best answer, but Alex, you got the best answer here. :)
Alex, are you sure this PSU can’t handle two 7950s?

It sounds great. No you won’t get as good of game play out of the 7870.http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/548?vs=550

    Yea I think you did good picking your parts athough I think you went a little cheap on the CPU there. I would try to get some sort of i5 CPU instead of an amd processor.

    Looks good.

    Consider switching the PSU to either a higher OR lower quality 650w:
    1. A 650w is more than enough to power that build (or any single GPU based system for that matter).
    2. That 750w is a bit unnecessary because it’s not enough to SLI 7950s (“only” +12V@54A) and as said, it’s more than you need.
    3. A higher quality 650w will last longer than that 750w.
    >But the Hive 750w is an excellent PSU. It’s innards are actually identical to the OCZ ZS 750w… it’s gotten great reviews.

    And regarding the HD 7950 – I would say it’s unbeatable coming in at $ 300. I would pick it over the GTX 660 Ti.

    EDIT: It *can* handle two HD 7950s but IMO, you shouldn’t because you must also factor in power decay (from the stress) and loss of efficiency.
