You think the amd 955 is powerfull enought to run bf3 ultra fine with the gtx680 or should I get the 8 core

4ghz should be quite possible - my 955 runs great at 4.2ghz @1.45v (no wizardry involved there, just make sure you have a decent cpu cooler)
your system should be fine without much overclocking though.

I also thing that your system is OK as it is...
also for me teh max settings are quite OK because I don't see obvious difference between max and ultra... and the performance drop for ultra is a bit too much for me...

I have a 965 BE @ 4 ghz, nothing really hard here. To tell you the truth I rarely use the OC profile, I forget to turn it on and everything has been playable. You don't see huge FPS Epeen but at close to max settings everything is studder free and enjoyable.
