Hi.

I would like a graphics card that can run BF3 on high settings at a nice speed and in my budget.

currently i have £632.94 my budget is £880

must be an nvidia card because bf3 is optimised for nvidia cards.

and the website is dabs.com

wow i cant believe how much hard drives have gone up in price - over the last month or so they seem to have doubled!

if you dont need anything else and your build is complete (except gpu) I'd suggest this bugger, it's on offer with OCUK:

review: http://aphnetworks.com/reviews/gigabyte_geforce_gtx_570...

so you were at £616.91

plus this card @ £275.99 inc VAT (was £300)

total: £892.90


bear in mind you will also want an better cpu cooler than the stock intel one supplied with the 2500K, this is fairly inexpensive and should be able OC your CPU to somewhere around 4.2GHz to 5GHz

I'd also go with 8GB RAM
http://www.ebuyer.com/264750-g-skill-8gb-2x4gb-ddr3-160...
Your 4GB @ dabs costs around £36/39 for 1333MHz and 1600MHz, the above linked 8GB G.Skill 1600MHz costs just £42


My tip would be to shop around, check out OCUK and ebuyer
still shocked at HDD prices wow they shot up quick, wow

I'd also encourage you to pay 20 quid more for a full tower case, eg.

but I'm mindful I'm pushing you over your budget
its all food for thought
