What ipat8 said. If you haven't already bought the 610, bump down the CPU to maybe a Phenom II X4 955/965, or even an Intel G860, then use the extra money to buy a better GPU. Try aiming for either a 7750 or GT 630( or 530, if I remember correctly, the lower-end 600-series NVidia cards were slower than their 500-series counterparts. For what reason, I can't recall exactly, but I think it was something like the 600 cards have slower memory bandwidth) or higher.
If you get the GT 610, I'm guessing you'll be able to get BF3 on medium at 720p with 25 FPS upwards. As for the other games, I can't tell you exactly what you'll get, as I haven't played them yet. If you get the 7750/630/530, you should be able to put BF3 on high at 1080p with 25-30 FPS upwards( you could probably even aim for some Ultra settings on the 7750)
Change the 4GB of RAM from a dual-channel kit into a single-channel one( meaning only 1 stick of 4GB RAM), so when you upgrade, you don't have to buy another kit of 2x8GB, you can just add another 1x4GB stick.
If you there you can find any decent 400W-450W PSUs that are cheaper than the one you picked, you can also get that instead to save more money/ put more money towards the GPU.( You'll be surprised to find that a lot of 500W PSUs are cheaper than lower wattage PSUs)
