Hi everyone,

I want to build a new desktop to run BF3 all maxed out on the Dell U2410 IPS monitor.
Graphic card budget = $900

What setup do you recommend without it being complete overkill?

Thanks & regards,

$900 for graphics or the whole build?

If you want to max out BF3 on Ultra on a high res without being overkill you will best to get a HD 6970, GTX 580. You could go with a GTX 590 or HD6990 if you really wanted to , but are they really worth it?

$2,000 for the entire system except SSD & HDD.
Thus max of $900 for graphics, if SLI is really required.

In that price range for SLI you could go for 2 GTX 570 in SLI for less than 900 and your performance for BF3 will be excellent

Well, you could wait for the new 7xxx series that's coming out pretty soon and buy one of those, probably a 7970. Or, you could do what monsta suggested and SLI two 570's. OR, you could get a 6990 and have some money left over. OR, you could get a 580/6970. Pretty much anything that is 6950 and better will be perfect for what you want.

+2 on the waiting for the HD7000's part, they look like they could be monsters on paper, and it'll also bring current gen prices down.

My 5850s can run it at 1080p on Ultra (except 2xMSAA instead of 4x because it causes a weird CF issue where 1 gpu usage drops)

So, SLI 560Ti, CF 6870, etc up to a single 580 or 6970 would be fine. The 7970 of course is also a beast and will do the trick when it's available in stores.
