Considering BF3 isn't out yet, it'll be impossible to know ;) 

I'd swap out the 560Ti with the 6950; it performs better across the board at 1920x1080 and above. My 6950 2GB plays everything above 60fps so far...

Other than that the system looks good.

Looks good!

However, get rid of that anti-malware. You don't need it. (AVG free is an excellent free solution, running it right now)

Then, How is that motherboard almost $400? It should be closer to $180:

-Swap the HDD for a Samsung Spinpoint F3: It's a faster drive.

-Here's a slightly cheaper monitor: Looks to be the same, except no webcam.

-That case is a little expensive. It's up to you though.

And that's it! Great build. We don't know the recommended specs on BF3 yet so it's hard to say. however, I think you are in the clear :)
