I would wait with possible component upgrades till atleast december.
First i think you still have a decent system which should allow you to play anyway and then there is mention of a bf4 patch that brings "Mantle" to the game. Somekind of special API that can access AMD graphiccards more directly, kinda like DirectX. That could give (maybe) some nice boosts to them. Ofcourse it also depends on what else you intend to do with the system.

As for AMD drivers: I only had problems with the latest Beta 13.10v2 for BF4. All the ones before have been working without problems (but didnt update every month).

Should you intend to upgrade the CPU then i would go Intel. Currently AMD just hasnt anything that can compete with I5 or I7 on performance.

i agree with corvus
as far as driver problems i can honestly say i've not experienced any for a very long time.

interesting what corvus said about the "Mantle". bearing in mind that both xbox and playstation's next chips are AMD and those systems should be around for a long time to come.
