Well, your first problem is that Battlefield 3 is not on Mac.
And your second problem is, even if it was on Mac, your Mac would not be able to run it due to its specs.

So to answer your question, yes, buy it on XBOX 360 or PS3, or you could consider buying a real PC which most games are made for.

Your processor is fine but that 5670 is going to hold you back a lot. I'm using it currently with a i3 2100 and I'm getting around 30-40 fps with dips into the 20s. I'd highly recommend you upgrade to a 6770 or 6850 but I don't know if that's possible on a Mac

I guess it will run, but it won't look pretty.
Is that a 27" iMac? Because you won't be able to run it at 2560x1440.

If you want to get back into PC gaming, you could use your iMac as an external monitor for a Windows PC. Kind of defeats the purpose of having an all-in-one, but you can use your iMac for work, surfing the web, etc. and switch between your Mac and your PC with the press of a button.

Still my personal dream... if I could afford a 27" iMac :)

Hello, one thing you should do is sell your Imac and get a PC. Mac aren't that good for gaming and will be more not good when you are playing BF3. Since it's not in mac.

Also I suggest not buying xbox 360 or ps3, get a PC :) .

Upgrade your PC with the i7 and ditch the GTS 220 for a 5850 or 6850-70 if you can afford that.

The imacs are just a laptop in a screen that run Osx, you need a decent pc to run BF3.

the consoles also don't run the game well.

bf3 on ps3 looks like *** and it looks slightly better on 360.

Just get it for console.

Never heard of a mac with a 6970. Best I've seen is crossfire 5770s (or 6770s now I guess)
