BF3 Optimal Settings?

Hey guys i have a dell xps 8300 and i didnt have enough to buy my dream pc from cyberpower so i decided to upgrade my PC's GPU. I upgraded from an amd 5670 to a gtx 560. My question is the settings i should play on for battlfield 3 release tommorow.
My system specs

CPU: i7 2600@3.4ghz
RAM: 8 gigs of Dell Manufacturer memory i think 1600mhz
GPU:GTX 560 Superclocked by EVGA
PSU:460w Dell standard
DISPLAY:Alienware OptX 21.5" 2210
Ideal Resolution:1680x1080 or 1920x1080
I would like to play on either one of those resolutions on high settings with 4x AA. What should I do?

More about optimal settings
  1. You might not be able to play it maxed out.........Maybe with lowered details at 1080p
  2. Buy a 2nd GTX 560 and your good to go and won't need to care

    if money is a issue play at 1920 x 1080 with set to High and set shadows low and post proceing Low

    i played the Beta for BF3 hopefully its better optimized but my friend has GTX 560 and he was playing on High with Low shadows and low post proccesing

    I have a 560gtx ti and I played the beta on Ultra on 1920x1080. This card will have no problems running it on ultra (shadows and everything) when you leave FXAA and MSAA off. I just have to speciaal ingame aa on medium and I ran it at 40 fps most of the time (never dipped below 30)

    this is true but depends on what FPS he was looking for my friend wants 60 stabe FPS so he lowerd GPU settings some people can play fine on max with 30 fps some can't stand it
  5. tho i setting texture to ultra and changed everything to low in game but did not restard the game to see if my FPS will go up now doing so not sure wat was disable doing that but i knew texture were stil set to ultra and amongs a lot of things and i was getting 100FPS in the trains on my GTX 580 SC

    Ah yes off course, if you want 60 fps the 560 is not the card to get of course :D

    I want 40fps in most situations, that's enough for me personally. Will probably be playing the game on high, that should run pretty smooth
  7. thanks for all the replys. I dont have a good PSU and im not going to replace it so i am not upgrading.thank you for suggestions

  9. I think your PSU will die.. It's DELL. Not very high quality and only 460w. I would replace it SOON.
