If you read the OP's post, he's looking for a budget solution... not the best. Essentially asking what's the BEST for his buck (with the added requirement that it play BF3)

470 SLI or 6950 CF. 6950 CF being better. Also, 400USD isn't bad, even 500USD isn't bad.

With my sig rig I think I was doing about 60-70? I don't really remember.
If it helps any the Recommended Specs for the ALPHA were as follows:

RECOMMENDED PC SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
OS: Windows 7 or Vista (SP1)
Installed: Origin
CPU: Quadcore @ 2.0 GHz or faster
RAM: 4GB or more
Hard Drive: 7.25GB free
Video: 512 MB or greater DirectX 10 or 11 compatible card with latest drivers (AMD 11.5 or later, nVidia 275.33 or later)
Sound: DirectX 10 or 11 compatible card
Internet: broadband connection

60-70 FPS is lulz, specially without DX11.

Well, like I said I don't even remember. I was more worried about actually playing it since it was fine running on high.

Biggest PC release since Crysis? Arguably.

Both camps are gonna bring their big guns for driver performance.

Depth of field and tesselation are going the biggest performance hogs. With both turned off, I'll give the edge to AMD. With both turned on, Nvidia will get the edge.

Two GTX460's is about comparable to a GTX 580 (albeit, they'll run warmer and take up more slots) for less than 50% of the price. I believe a GTX 560 Ti is ~$200 if you find a good deal, so I hedge my vote for the GTX460 SLI.
Man, this would be a great idea, except my board won't do SLI...

Don't get why people post in threads that make them so angry. Anger management is never a bad idea. Forums are here to help, not rage.
