You have to remember that the 360/PS3 are roughly a 7800 GTX. If you had a 7800 GTX for PC there is no way for could get PS3/360 graphics even though you would be running the same hardware.

Now when it comes out just like every time in history a top of the line PC will beat it but a console will be equivalent to a medium end PC.
Well they run the games at low resolution which really helps, I think a 7800GTX could run MW3 at 1024x600 (the resolution on Xbox and PS3 AKA 30% less pixels than 1920x1080) on minumum settings.

Drop a 7800 GTX in your system, turn on MW3 put on all minimum settings, turn on vsync, set resolution to 1024x600. I would be interested to see if it ran at 60 FPS.

I have a hard time believing anything with a 6670 in it will be around a mid-end PC in a year and a half, hell... I wouldn't call it a mid-end PC now even if games were optimized for it.
