I'm still wondering why all people are opening threads for this game specifically ? :) 
yes you'll, according to system requirements of BF3 a HD 6950 or GTX 560ti are the recommended GPUs, can max it out. you'll be more than fine with GTX 580
but what is the model of your PSU ?

i know that OEM PCs are equipped with a maximum 380W PSU if it's a buisness Desktop, did you have a gamer machine or something like that ? does your PSU have PCIe 6 and 6+2 pins ? anyhow certified by HP for CF or SLI ?

if you're going to SLI in future, a 750W PSU won't be sufficient for your system, you need a 850W PSU and in this case i would recommend Cooler Master Silent Pro 850W, NZXT HALE90 850W, Corsair TX850, Antec TPQ 850W (if still in production)
each company of those are reputable and famous with good quality PSUs but only stick with the models i listed above as they are rated as the best and have great reviews

Might want to check wattages but SLI'ing 2x580's he will want to get at LEAST 900W PSU at minimum. I'd say future proof yourself and get 1000W+. Also stick with good brands, seasonic, pc power and cooling, corsair etc. Stay away from bargain PSU's as they wont put out the power efficiently or be stable.

Check my posts I did vasts amount of research on this, and my comp 2500k, sli'd 580's Blu Ray and 2 HDs at full load will pull around 800-850. Do yourself a favor and get the better PSU, I did and never looked back. I am made it even took me that long to decide.

Also that game should be able to run it on high/max settings but Ultra quality DX11 has not been implemented so wait and see. High settings if anything else.

my recommendation is coolermaster silent pro 1kw 80+ bronze or gold if budget allows.i have gold version and i am running a single 580 3 gb version.no problems at all with psu(with other parts to lols).it is affordable in comparison to other quality psus IMO

Good PSU right there, If there is one thing I have learned after building various computers its that the PSU is one part your should NEVER cheap out on. It can cause so many headaches if faulty or not stable.
