Id also like an answer to this. I just ordered a cpu with an i5-3570k and an amd hd radeon 7770 and would like to know what frames I would be getting as well as the guy above me.

From what I've seen or been told at 1600x900 and 1920x1080 I should be getting good frames at high setting if not maxed.

Well obviously. People usually give estimations based on common games that test a computers gaming ability. Skyrim, BF3, Crysis 1-2...etc.

People at this forum care to much about frames. If two cards both give you playable frames, but one gives you 10 more you usually don't see a difference. The 7770 is a good card, cheap with good performance. You will get good frames on bf3 on ultra, you just can't run really high resolution. 1600x900 should be just fine.
 
people on this forum care about fps, because to different people "playable FPS" doesn't mean the same thing. Some people consider 20-30 playable, some people cannot play in 40-50 range, because the stutter bothers them. It's a matter of preference
