Can this build run BF3 max settings?

Hi I'm still tweaking the parts until I'm literally paying for them, which should be mid to late summer.

This is the build I'm thinking:

Case- Cooler Master HAF 932
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119213

Mobo- Asus P8Z77-V Pro
http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8Z77V_PRO/

CPU- Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge

CPU Cooler- Noctua NH-D14
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835608018

GPU- 2 EVGA 660 Ti's SLI (or maybe a single 680, to SLI in the future)

RAM- Corsair Vengeance 8GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233186

Storage- Intel 520 240GB SSD (This build is STRICTLY for gaming, so I think I only need an SSD for the fast boot times. No music or any other apps)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820167086

Optical Drive- Asus 24x DVD Burner
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827135204

PSU- Corsair AX750 80+ Gold
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139016

Monitor- Asus VH238H 23" 2ms 1080p LED
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236117

I will probably be playing at 1920x1080, since that is the native for the monitor. Now, I know Kepler and Ivy Bridge have yet to be released, but I have heard pretty good things so far. I want to be able to play BF3 and Crysis at max, or at least high, settings smoothly. I want to keep the cost at around ~$1800-2000. Assuming the new products will be around the same price as their predecessors, the current cost of this setup would run me about $2000. Any and all advice on tweaks and replacements, especially to optimize performance, yet bring down the cost, will be greatly appreciated!

I would prefer newegg as a reference site.

I know I still have quite some time to make my decision, but I was just curious if this will be able to do what I want from my machine, or am I expecting too much? Thanks in advance!!

  1. As of now they don't have two 560 Ti's in SLI rated but it should perform better than one 580. If you do go one card get the 7950 or 7970.

  2. Yes it would. run things Max'd @ 1080P

    I have heard some whispers that the Mobile GPU range will be the 6xx series and the desktop range is going to 7xx

    That's an interesting rumor? But if you search up the latest GDC, you will see that Epic confirmed that their Samaritan Demo for this year was rendered using a single 680 card. Also, some more pictures of the card itself, without the cover and fan, have been leaked.
