Here are my specs.

EVGA Nvidia 680 2GB
Intel I5 3570 (non K)
4gb ddr3 ram
250gb 7200rpm caviar black hardrive
550w kingwin modular power supply 80+ bronze certified
Commander MS-I Snow caase
windows 7 ultimate 64bit
Asus 23" LED LCD monitor.

How well is this gaming setup for max setting gaming at 1080p? I plan to play games like Far Cry 3, BF3, Metro 2033, Metro last light, Batman Arkham City, and many other games at max settings at 1080p.

Yes you could max out all current games. BUT..... with some games like Metro LL, Tomb Raider e.t.c... the most modern or next gen if you will, you may struggle to maintain above 60fps.
Example, I have the 690 and it has a pretty high OC but yet I get fps drops to as low as 30fps in Tomb Raider on max settings. I know that's not a game you mentioned but it's an example of how demanding some games are.
P.S. HIGHLY recommend the new Tomb Raider, I admit I've not been a fan of the TR series for years but this instalment is fantastic, really worth a look =)

Only real suggestion I would make to that rig, seriously lacking an SSD. A 120GB would do nicely, 250GB even better. Boot times, game load times.. e.t.c.. would improve dramatically. And I won't say anything about the "k" version of the 3570 would've been a better choice ;) 

Hope this helps =)

As long as it gets 30 FPS or above, I am fine with it, so that's good to hear! The only reason that I don't want an SSD is because how expensive it is for a high memory model. I need the space for games, and 250 GB just ins't enough for me at the moment. I plan to get a 1 TB HDD soon. And the reason for the non k version of the 3570 is because my MB can't overclock, which isn't really important for me.

Oh right got ya. Yeah SSD's are still quite expensive price per GB when compared to HDD's.

Just curious though from what you said, do you not see or feel a big difference between 30 and 60fps???

I don't really feel a difference. I'm sure there is one, but I usually don't notice it much.

Oh ok. Was just curious =)

Well I hope I helped reassure you a bit, I'm sure you will have no problems maxing current games with that rig.

Cheers, have fun =)
