Only the GTX 460 would be able to max BF3 at 1366x768.

However, it's not happening with your computer. You'd need at least Sandy Bridge i3/Core2Quad/Phenom II CPU, 4 GB of ram (preferably 8 GB) and much better power supply unit.

Of the cards you list, the HD6670 is the only viable choice for your PSU. If available, a HD7750 would be stronger, and also not need a PCIe power connector.
Your CPU is old, so do not expect to play on max details. I believe the game will be playable, but on considerably lowered settings. "Medium" still looks pretty good though.
