the 660 is slightly behind the 660 ti and the 660 ti is a good 10% or more faster then a gtx 580, and the 660 comsumes less power

Diablo 3 you'll easily hit the 120 limit, that game doesn't take much, for bf3...I've never played it but with that CPU matched with a 660 you should do very very well. I7s are a little overkill for gaming most people will stick with the 3570 I5 which is how I know this without playing the game.

Its not that great of a cooler. I have one, and on my 2500K, and it cools just fine, but with Arctic Silver 5 and 2 radiator fans I see similar temperatures to my 212 Plus.

For the price, its not the best option there is.

well its easier to install than the 212 evo or plus right?

Not necessarily, as well it costs twice as much.
