Anyone who has a GTX590 doesn't need to worry about being able to max things for the next few years or so, especially with the way games are being developed for consoles at the moment :)

lol thanks guys :p  for the record i was genuinely interested, because i heard some rumours that only 5-7 percent of people will be able to max out BF3 on their computers.. just wondering if I was part of that 5-7 percent lol.

6990 benchmarks are lower than the 590, but it's still a very powerful card (their flagship.) Personally I'd always go Nvidia over AMD, as I've had problem's with the 6990 drivers. The 6990 is supposed to be equal to the 590, but the 590 is slightly more powerful.

The 2600k is an alright choice, but it's no better than the 2500k from a gaming point of view as the hyperthreading is of no use in video games. Better to go for the 2500k if gaming is what you plan to do, as you'll save money and get the same results. However if you plan on doing really heavy stuff, like photo or video editing, then the 2600k is a better choice.
