The question is simple, how do you think BF3 will perform on my pc? Im buying a 680 soon...


Gigabyte EP43Y-USB3.0
Core2Quad Q9400 2.66 GHz (Maybe OC' ing)
8gb DDR3 (1333MHz)
Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Gtx 680 2gb DDR5

i wouldn't bother with a 680, you can get a 670 with almost the same performance and a lot cheaper, then maby you could use that money some where else on your rig. i cant speak for the CPU but the rest of the system is OK, you should be able to get 60 + fps at ultra with both the 670 or 680, my advice would be to get Asus GTX 670 Direct CU II TOP, best card for the money atm no doubt.
 
chances are that older games will bottleneck on your 9400 if you get either of them cards. im not even convinced a q9400 wouldnt bottleneck a 570 especially if your motherboard is a 1.1 pci-e x16 as it has a little less power than pci-e 2.1 which is the minimum you will want to run the 670 on.
