I am about to order this system and I was wondering if this system is good enough for BF3 on ultra @ 1920x1080 with no AA? I plan to unlock and overclock the 960t to x6 3.4Ghz (or possibly more)

I'd say yes, albeit you'll maybe be hovering around 35fps on avg.

so to answer your simple question...simple answer, yes.

I would think no. With that video card the best you could play would be high settings, at that resolution. You might be able to do a combination of high and ultra settings. a 6970, or 7850 should do ultra though

You will run it on Medium-High at 1080P no problem.I am not sure about Ultra High though i really don't think so but i could be wrong.

I would think this too but after I saw this video I assumed that a 6870 would run it just fine. I have heard that an SSD can increase fps. Would it be a good idea to invest in an SSD exclusively for games and get another traditional 500gb HDD for everything else?

How about running it on ultra at 1600x900? I really just want games to play at least 30 fps I really can't notice a difference after that so if it runs at around 30 fps I will be happy :D

I run bf3 on ultra with a gtx560Ti,448 core, but that is at 1600X900, and that is single player. I have to lower it to a high / ultra combo for multi player, just to give ya an idea where an Nvidia card stands
