The 550W will suffice for the setup. But just to be on the safer side, I'd get at least a 600W. What brand is your current PSU?

By the way.. if you are going to get a 670, please tell me your going to upgrading your monitor! Playing at that res with that card seems a little odd to me

was thinking about this psu should be fine for mine needs right?

I'm running mine on a CoolerMaster as well. While many people consider it to be an 'ok-ish' brand, I haven't faced any issues till date (touchwood!). Corsair, Antec are some of the better brands which will be recommended by many here over CoolerMaster.

Personally, I'm happy with a CoolerMaster. :)

What brand/model is your current 550W PSU? It should be sufficient for a GTX670 as long as it has a decent Amp rating.

To answe the original question though;

A 670 + i5 3570 + 12GB RAM = 50-60 fps on BF3 on full maxed out Ultra settings @ 1920x1080

The psu is unbranded as far as i can tell, so i will definately be getting a new one
