Computer specs:
Processor : AMD Phenom II X6 1090T @ 3200MHz
Physical Memory : 6GB (3 x 2048 DDR3-SDRAM )
Mainboard : MSI 790FX-GD70

My limit is 600 but would prefer not spending it all!

I was thinking about two of these:

and this power supply:

so what do you think? BF3 60+ FPS?
Is there maybe a single card that would be better then the one listed above for around the same price?

Thanks

No you won't get 60+ FPS in BF3 with that GPU. 60+ fps is a lot for a game like BF3 if you want to play on ultra 1920x1080 so you would end up with the high end cards which cost a lot.

I would have to say that a single-card setup would be a bit better. It takes less power, generates less heat, and generally has less issues that a 2-card setup. In the future though, you could get another card of the card you do end up with.

Now, we have to address your processor. While it is still considered quick, its going to have its limit when it comes to very high end cards. You could maybe go for a 7850 or 7870 and get a new power supply:
