Even used, a GTX590 would be half your budget, nor is it a very good recommendation for a new build.

GTX770 outperforms it for $~400
You can max BF3 @ 1080p with a single GTX 580, GTX670, GTX760.

$700, prices won't be the same in a month, but this is a good starting point. If you want to go Intel instead, look into a Z77 board with a i5-3570k. If you want to stretch the budget I highly recommend a GTX760.

Well, if you are willing to spend about $850-900, we can certainly squeeze an Intel chip into there. They do perform better, but cost significantly more.

AMD chip with the stock cooler can be overclocked a little, really this build would also need an aftermarket cooler. Overclocking with Intel is about the same price as a non-overclocking setup, at the moment anyway.

Replace gtx 660 with gtx 760, just a bit more expensive but better.

Get xfx 550w , its plenty, dont need for more.
