I think a 560 would easily turn all the settings too max, but if you want too max out AA and AF etc. then maybe a 570 would be needed. A 580 would probably be the perfect card if you want too max it, its what they used on the demo rigs at E3.
I agree, getting a really expensive GPU like GTX 580 and 590 is pretty pointless if your going to get rid of it a year later. Go for the GTX 570, you'll be just fine with it on a 1080p monitor. Unless you want to absolutely be sure to max everything out, then a GTX 580 is fine.
