Is my new computer gonna be good enough to play BF3 of ultra settings?

I am fairly new to pc building and need help. these are my specs( i will also have a 1920x1080 monitor).

Intel Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor,
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler,
Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H ATX LGA1155 Motherboard,
Samsung 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory,
Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive,
OCZ Vertex 4 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk,
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 550 Ti 1GB Video Card,
Cooler Master Elite 330 Upgraded ATX Mid Tower Case,
Corsair Professional 650W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply.

I am open to suggestions on how to improve. i am happy with it, but want to make sure its ok.

  1. Everything is fine except for the GPU. A 550 Ti just won't do for BF3 on ultra @ 1080p.

    You need to be thinking much higher end than a 550 Ti for that.

    Like a 660 Ti/Radeon 7950.
  2. 6870 minimum for 1080p at ultra, would recommend a 7850 or 560ti
  3. ^ Those would be absolute minimums.

    Although a 660 non-Ti would do, if you can't afford a 660 Ti.
  4. Why a 128GB SSD? Don't get that and drop the money on a better GPU+Case! Add the SSD later on.
  5. ^+1 on amuffin's suggestion. gaming is your major concern here so dropping an SSD for a better GPU isn't going to hurt you a lot.
