It depends, what resolution you're planning to run the game on, the amount of memory you have; the GPU is good enough, although the CPU might be better. You will probably not be able to use ultra settings, but high settings might work.

Are you talking about the i3 2100 @ 3.10 GHz ?
It could be of a little bottleneck for a GTX 580.
Either you should get a better CPU or another GPU, like the 6870 or GTX 560.

Looks like i will be buying a i7-950 with a GTX 560 Ti Maximum Graphics Edition, and for the resolution 1600x900 that should run the game with only 2-3 options turned to high and sorry if i sound like a idiot to you i am new to PC Gaming

That card can do quite well at that resolution.
If you haven't bought the set up yet, I'll advise you to get a 2500k instead of a 950. The 2500k is faster than an i7 950, and it's cheaper as well.

why not go with the i-5 2500k? It is cheaper than that i-7, and is a great overclocker

Yeah, considering that the 2500k is much faster than any of the i7 9xx CPUs, the OP should really get one of those. :)

At that resolution, it may run well at 30FPS, but who knows. At high, yes, at ultra, maybe not.

Batman Arkham Asylum is a lot more less demanding, so you can run that game fine without a problem. :)

If you wanna run your games at Ulta for BF3 your gonna need to have 2 580's in SLI

You can use three screens with the game
Next 1 - 3 weeks will bring more information about maps
Battlelog application for iPhone/iOS (free). No word on Android.
Battlelog is updated separately to allow game updating to be a bit more flawless
More community events in the works (some happening here on enterbf3!)
Mod tools are still a possibility
Two nVidia GTX 580's can run the game on ultra
Battlefield 3 may be available on the Xbox marketplace
Some 300 employees at DICE

Yeah the requirements for BF3 are insane. I saw the recommended GPU being in the field of an HD6950 with 4GB RAM and a quad core CPU. This is only recommended. But I don't agree with ^this. Two GTX580's for ultra? That's insane. I'm willing to bet two GTX460's in SLI will max it out at full HD.

Recommended is for medium, and if you keep following the tweets it's been confirmed that you need two gtx580's for ultra.

2 580's in SLI sounds like overkill, or they are just trying to get people to spend money on Nvidia high end cards. I will be playing the BETA later today when I get off work. I have a MSI GTX 470 Twin Frozr II and I can run Crysis 2 maxed out at 1920x1200 and get very decent framerates. Around 30-40 FPS. VERY playable! This is with the DX11 patch and High Resolution Texture patch as well. Just so everyone knows...here are my system specs.

MSI 890FXA-GD65 mobo
AMD Phenom II 945 Quad Core 3.0Ghz
8GB DDR3-1066 RAM
MSI GTX 470 Twin Frozr II
Corsair Force Series 3 120GB SSD (OS Drive)
Corsair HX750 PSU Professional Series

No no no...They latter tweeted that they made a mistake and that the recommended requirements were for HIGH settings. And no, they never said 580's are what you need to max the game. They didn't say it because it isn't true.

I was in the Alpha and run it on high with a 460 GTX (768mb) with no problems. For ultra I'm not sure though.

They actually did say that. Here is the link...

Ah, I take it back then. I still find that hard to believe. Perhaps by ultra they mean at resolutions above 1080p and with every single setting turned all the way up, even the most demanding like HBAO and tessellation, along with super sampling.

Here is where they correct themselves and say the recommended is for high though:

Literally have no slept since Beta dropped, and probably wont for a while, I've been running Ultra settings on a Q9550 @ 3.65ghz and a 1gb HD5850 at between 30-60fps, depending on field of vision (in open field vs. subway tunnels.)
Motion blur disabled (why the hell would I want it blurry!?!?)

BF3 is the crack for the gaming community, every tom dick and harry wants to run it on ultra, but the reality is it takes a lot of money to attain that level, at the end of the day the game is not worth that effort, maybe if they add content rather than eye candy it will be worth shelling out $4000 to max it out.

You will do very well to put Ultra out of your mind and just play the game on high, have fun, move on and realize just how bad it really is.

My Intel Core2 2.6 ghz (4 Core), Asus Geforce GT 440, 6gb ram (866 mhz) can run BF3 Medium with high Textures and High effects at 30-45 FPS.

You'll be fine
