Do you already have a monitor? Any certain resolution you plan on playing at?

That current setup will run games at 1080p but you'll have to lower the graphic settings a notch or two.

If you want to run bf3 with graphic settings maxed up, I'd look into at least a Tier 3 of the Mainstream Gaming PCs.

RE: Question on what this rig can run
with that setup you'll be able to run BF3 at 1080p on ultra preset at about 50 fps. keep in mind that you wont be able to run multiple cpu demanding programs in the background while playing bf3 with that cpu. other than that, the i3 will run it just fine.

like mat said if you want to run ultra with lots of AA/AF or MSAA you will have to upgrade to keep the frame rates from dipping in heavy multi-player action.
