specifically for BF3, the GTX 570. though the 7850 will be less taxing on the psu and if you do plan to crossfire, would be less demanding on your psu overall(with a single 6 pin requirement compared to the 2 6pin requirements of the 570 and the 560ti)

what graphic card you get should depend on you're budget. Generally speaking BF3 is a RAM hog, so if you want to run on ultra look for a newer generation AMD or Nvidia with at least 2GB of RAM

Get a gtx 670. $400 dollars, will max out bf3 with AA on full. If you don't want to spend quite that much, get a radeon 7870. IMO the 670 would be worth the higher price because you will be much more future proof. A 7870 will run bf3 pretty damn well, but won't max it out if you use full AA on Ultra. Don't get anything with less than 2 GB of VRAM if you plan to run bf3 on the highest settings. The least I would get would be a 7850. Get that over the 570. The stock 570 is great but is bottlenecked with VRAM. The 7850 will be more future proof in that regard and will scale much better in crossfire as a result.

Hope this makes sense, don't feel like proof reading

if you plan to max BF3, id take the one past 2gb due to the fact that it is possible for BF3 to hit past 1.5gb of vram

the Nvidia GTX 670 is the best performance per dollar card in that price range. Plus you can get plenty of non-reference designs that will accommodate great cooling and good overclocks
