Well I just hope my 6950 2GB unlocked to 6970 will run everything at max settings. I just want to see this game in full glory!
If you can find a 6950 that will unlock I say go for it! If you don't care about paying way more money then a GTX 580 is the best single card possible to play BF3 with (not dual gpu of course). Although I for one could not justify paying the money for a GTX 580.

Bad Company 2 was a mess at launch but they managed to fix it 6 months later with a lot of patching. I hope history does not repeat itself.
And I agree, most of the advice on these boards is not solid. A GTX 580 is never a great value at $500...Great value would be a $300 GTX 570 or a $250 GTX 560.
Comparing a game built from the ground up on DX 9 to run on 6 year old hardware and a game built from the ground up on DX 11 to run on current generation hardware... what is this I don't even...
Although I agree on the 580... just waaaay too much to justify for most gamers. I am a hardcore gamer and could never think of spending that much money on a gfx card ever again (bought an 8800 gtx for 700 bucks!!!). I say anything over 400 dollars is just for people who MUST have the most expensive hardware. I am all about price to performance and nVidia has had that lots of times and now AMD is sitting in that seat.
