You wont be running BF3 on max settings with a 6950(2 x 6950's will come close), I've got 4 x 6970's and it takes 2 x 6970's to maintain BF2 over
the 60FPS on ALL max settings @ a resolution of 1920x1200(not really much more than 1080p), dont get me wrong a 6950 will be more than suffice to runt
he game, but you'll be dropping well below 60FPS at times if you try to max out BF3.
So to be honest you'll be wanting AT LEAST 2 x 6950's(2 x GTX570's or 2 x 6970's would be better) if you want to run BF3 at max settings, of
course you'll also need to make sure you have 2 x PCI-E slots on the motherboard you buy if you are planning on going for 2 cards, and youll also
want at least a good quality 700W PSU if buying 2 x 6950's(more if you're going for 2 x GTX570's or 2 x 6970's). If you decide that for whatever
reason you dont want 2 graphics cards then you'll want to get a GTX580(forget the GTX590) or a 6990(but pretty expensive and two seperate graphics
cards would be better).
