Hi just curious what i will be able to play on battlefield 3
from what I heard and I also want to confirmy you need probably 2 gtx 580's/6970s to run it on utlra?

if recomended settings is a 5850 than what can I get?

Saphire 5850 Toxic 1 gb
i5-2500k
Asus p8p67 pro
2tb hdd + 64 gb ssd
8gb 1333 corsair dominator


Should I OC the card?

if your monitor resolution is 1920x1080 you will be playing it on medium settings
if you overclock you will get an extra 5 fps, that will allow you to set one slot to high or AAx2

Nvidia website Geforce.com says that to run the game on highest settings you will have to get GTX 560 SLI
or HD 6950 crossfire at least .. but you should be good with gtx 580 SLI ;)

Not to be snide, but there's a LOT of money potentially involved here. If you're mostly interested in gameplay, I suspect you will be fine. If you are more interested in graphics, then I would recommend a good IMAX presentation, or possibly a road trip to an area near you soon to be awash in the rich colors of an Autumn forest.
Seriously, wait for benchmarks. Both nVidia and AMD have released new beta drivers just for this game, and I expect more driver tweaks are coming.
Depending on your PSU, and your total budget, a single HD6970 or GTX570 would likely provide a solid improvement without breaking the bank too badly.

Right but I want to verify that if I buy a gtx570 i can bring it up a notch from Standard to the next setting. Atleast utlra.

I have not used a reference GTX570, but in Beta, I am running an EVGA GTX570 Superclocked with everything maxed out as much as possible with no issues. Granted ultra isn't unlocked to test that out, but the 570 holds its own in beta at least.

What would be the main difference on a 6970 2gb and a gtx 570 for the same price?

Currently I have a good deal for a 6970 new for 300 flat possibly lower

Wait until the full game comes out before u buy a GPU. Buy the game, test it out, see if you're happy with your performance. I defs recommend getting another 5850 in CF,if you can find one. If not, go with 6950 2gb and flash to 6970(must be reference design to do so).
BTW:

See the thing is I haev a 5850 toxic 1gb finding a CF for it is like sooo expensive. I rather sell that. NCIX and I are working something out since they messed up my order on a gtx 570 as they couldn't reply idk..... Long story

If i could get the 6970 for <300 should I go for it?

You don't need another HD 5850 Toxic, you just need any other HD 5850 1GB card, even a HD 5870 would work.

a single GTX 570 or HD 6970 will max out BF3 in Ultra.
i played the Beta i was hitting 35 FPS in Caspain Border and 50 FPS in Metro Operation with my HD 6950
and according to Beta Benchs a GTX 570 or HD 6970 should get you over 50 FPS
