Even if you bought a 660ti now, do you think that you'd be happily gaming with it in 4-5 years? That card doesn't have that kind of lifespan vs. the rate of increasing game demands.

If you're shopping now I'd recommend the 7950 or save another paycheck and go for a 670.

You probably won't see 2560x1600+ becoming ubiquitous anytime soon since there isn't a major push for televisions to go beyond 1920x1080 at the moment and television resolution is what has pushed 16:9 to become more common in PC monitors than 16:10.

No matter what card you buy today you will have to upgrade it in 3 years MAX.

he asked what is the gpu that can let him play bf3 in good resolution and save some money at the same time so thats why i told him to buy it , and btw u can play bf3 in high settings or even ultra smoothly with the GTX 560ti .

Games already support 2560x1600 resolution.

I find it very difficult to believe any game in the future will only support nothing less than 2560x1600. A 2560x1600 is pretty expensive and large. Also a GPU (or two) necessary to drive games at that high resolution will be expensive.

Assuming you do not accept anything less than high or ultra graphic settings.

My Radeon HD 5850 is 3 years old now and it is still capable of playing games today (1920x1200 resolution). I'm not a hardcore gamer so medium graphics quality is fine. If I don't get enough performance with everything set to medium quality, then I'll upgrade.

Bad advice. GTX 660 costs the same and is much faster.
