I would definitely hold off until you at least try the game out. It probably won't be hard to find a 2500k owner with sli 470's setup to compare your results. Then make your decision.
I had sli 470s until I fried one of them, otherwise I'd share results with you. Now I have a gtx580 on the way for bf3, and will be putting the functioning gtx470 in my htpc. Its rather disappointing to downgrade my gaming rig to a gtx580, but at the same time is cool to upgrade my htpc to a light gaming htpc.
