How good is a EVGA Geforce GTX 680 2GB and a Intel I5 3570k for gaming?

Just ordered these two parts to replace my 550ti and my I3 celeron. How good will the 680 and 3570k handle games on max settings at 1080p? I plan to play BF3, Far cry 3, Metro 2033, Metro last light, and Batman Arkham city just to name a few. Should it handle these games and more at max settings with a fluent FPS?

Well this is the thing it would have been better to ask before you buy unless you can return them. That being said you will be find to play those gate at 1080p with high/ultra setting. With that said if you can return that get get a GTX 770 with out a restocking fee I would asap. The GTX 770 is faster and cost like $100 less than the 680.

680 and a 3570k would run everything you'll throw at it in 1080p with max settings or not as far from max (maybe turn AA down to 8X 4X over 16X but still at max details...)

PS: the 770 is a better option as for right now (sells for 400$ and a little faster than a 680)

Well I got the 680 for 350$ in an auction on ebay, which is less than what the 770 is. Isn't the 770 only like 5% better in performance compared to the 680? Or is the performance a large difference?

it's a 680 that overclock more itself but at same clock, ram speed, they're identical (the 770 is beter only as the Vram is faster)

For that price, the 680 is still a really decent card.
