A 660 ti from nvidia or a 7950 from amd, will get you those framerates on BF3.
You have a good cpu, and any z77 mobo will do for any card, 6GB ram is more than suffice for most games.
Don't forget to check if you have a decent psu with 500-600w.

im going to use a 600w power but for ultra in Battle Field 3 do i need to overclock the cpu or the gtx 660 ti graphic card?
Or do u think with this i should be fine.

Please note he said DECENT psu... even if it says 600w, if it's not reliable, then it's going to be putting out considerably less power.

What model 600w PSU? You can't just assume any 600w PSU will work. You might want to think about getting a CPU cooler if you don't already have one and overclock your CPU to 4.2-4.5Ghz. The Hyper 212 Evo(~$30) is one of the best coolers for the price.

Unless he plays in big multiplayer maps then it is very CPU intensive.

i5 2500k is just fine. an i7 will not make it any better. the 2500k is still one of the top cpu's its not like is a dual core pentium.the 3570k isnt going to gain him anything.

I know this... I'm saying you should think about overclocking it if you have not already.

im not going to argue worthless stats. he needs more gpu. not cpu. thats my opinion if you dont like it then dont use it.

No need to get upset, I was just wondering if you could still keep 60 fps in large BF3 multiplayer maps....

Yes that is a decent PSU... Do you already have it or are you planning to buy it? I ask this because that is not a very good price for it... Are you able to order from newegg?
