I'm expecting BF3 to be a Extremely power hungry game.

So, Throw what you will at it I know I will be.

Having Eyefinity my self I'm thinking my current setup isn't going to be enough =(.
I have 1080p, and my cards will forsure run the game.

Oh I'm sure Dual Crossfire of 6950's or 6970's will max.

But at 5760x1080 Reso, You'll need a touch more power I'm thinking.

BF3 will mostly CPU hungry on 4 cores due to the Frostbite 2.0 engine calculating all the motion movements and physical objects.

I would keep the 6870 and go for 7xxx Series later if 7xxx series comes out when BF3 comes out. If not, get a 6970 2GB and go for CF later

This is what I was thinking, but I remember reading the 7 series is only in late 2012? Given how often new items come out I can play the 1 year waiting game every year .

I do play at 1680x1050, and do not plan on replacing the monitors anytime soon. Is vRam usage typically fixed at a given resolution or are a lot of other factors going to come into play? Personally I think I would like to just keep the 6870, and xfire it later or in the unlikely case wait until the 7 series.
