Is this a good setup for 2014?

AMD FX-6300
12 GB DDR3 1333
Radeon HD 7850 2 GB

Will this be comparable to PS4 and Xbox One for next year, or should I go with an 8 core CPU? I don't care about 1080p, 720p will be enough so will my card run at or close to max settings at 720p with good framerate for games such as battlefield 4?

This will handle 720p very well if that's all you require.

Thanks so much. I'm already playing Crysis 3 at max for 720p and I'm still using a Phenom II X4. Getting I think 30-40 frames, but I don't mind I've been with Xbox 360 all last gen and I'm used to low framerate lol

Yep

Play at 1080p or higher with graphics maxed to experience an actual graphical difference between the consoles and PC.

My current rig I built two years ago beats the PS4 & XBone and they aren't even out yet. That's just sad....

But yeah. Do what I said with games like Far Cry 3, Skyrim with texture & ENB mods, Meteo Last Light, Splinter Cell Blacklist, and many other games.

Crysis 3 to me already looks like a generation up compared to the Xbox 360 version, which was stunning to me when I got the 7850 (previously had a 5750). I thought that 1080p wasn't really a noticeable difference to 720p on smaller screens such as a 22' LED like mine, or is it?

720p looks good if its on a native monitor but finding them isn't easy these days. What monitor are you primarily using?

Why not wait for the R9-280X and Haswell refresh? Your card is decent, but the next gen consoles are stronger.

Acer H226HQL as my main monitor, Acer H213H as my second. I do believe 1080p is native on both monitors.

I actually just bought the 7850 since it was a shell shocker deal on newegg for $109.99 after MIR, but now I'm regretting not getting a stronger card. I guess I could sell the 7850 and get a better video card along with the FX6300. I want to make sure I can get the best out of my PC at a tight budget.
