I have an i7 2600 8 gigs of ram to supplement that. And the GTX 560 i will put on 1680 i guess or leave it to the game to come up with the reccomended settings

You will want the i7 2600K and a pair of 580's in SLI as a minimum. It's expensive for some but so worth it. It's just a starting point. I have seen my computer use half of my 16 gig of 2133 ram in addition to a fast SSD cache and raid stack during BF3. (AND about 4 of 6 gig of GPU memory running at god knows how much overclock.)

but since it's a beta it probably hasn't been optimized. Though 2 580's would work great

Because this my bros system he wants to upgrade. I have my own. And his PSU is only a 460 watt so i am limited to only certain GPU's

Then get an AMD Radeon 6870 or GTX 560 TI or HD 6950. and you will be done. Of course you must have at least a 600W minimum PSU in order to have the whole computer working properly . with those cards you should be between 30 and 60 FPS at high settings ON BF3.

I am currently running 1090T, crosshair iv formula, 8gb kingston hyper x 1600, velociraptor 600gb sata 6.0gb/s, and xfx 5870. Playing BF3 on ultra im getting anywhere from 50-90fps.
