The CPU is fantastic, the GPU not so much. The CPU wont bottleneck the GPU at all, but the GPU wont run things like Battlefield 3 on high settings.

Neither the FX6100 or 3770k will bottleneck the 7770, but the 3770k will be much faster. What do you intend on doing with your PC all around? If it is just gaming you would be fine with the 3570k to save a bit of money unless budget isn't a problem.

3570k would be the better bet then.

Why do you think that would be better? Surely the i7 3770k would be better?

The benefits of having a 3770k over a 3570k for gaming are severely outweighed by the extra cost. The 3570k and 2500k are pretty much perfect for games as no more than 4 cores are used. Having HT just generates extra unnecessary heat.

Ah, would it run bf3 on ultra smooth? If so, how much fps avg would you think it will get? And what would be best, 3570k or 2500k? Thankyou

All 3 CPUs mentioned would play BF3 smooth, but the 7770 wont play it smooth on high settings unless you have a lower resolution monitor. The 3570k is the better of the 2 CPUs.
To give you an idea of performance here is a chart.



According to this, at 1920x1200 with 4xAA the 7770 is slightly slower than a 465 which is what I currently have. My card is OCed to about 480 speeds and at 1920x1080 I play medium to high settings with 2xAA and High post AA. I average about 40fps with this card and a 2500k. With the 7770 you will probably average a bit less depending on settings and resolution.
