I would also suggest the GTX670 or the 7950.You'll need to spend the most you can if you want to play BF3 on Ultra at a constant 60fps.The other games you'll have no problem maxing out.

gtx 670 if you can swing $400, EVGA is generally regarded as the favorite, MSI, ASUS and others good too

otherwise 7870 or 7850, I like Sapphire brand

Yes but that's not the only reason.Most aftermarket solutions improve on everything the reference design has to offer.Better power delivery,cooling and many more things.All of this translates to better overclocking and longitivity.

Here's the review of the Gigabyte GTX670.
