I was a GTX 580 owner up til about last week. The GTX 580 will need a 900+MHz overclock on the core to keep decent frames at 1080P and Ultra. If you drop MSAA and use SMAA instead (search for FXAA injection) you should be able to get very good frames with stock clocks. SMAA provides anti-aliasing that is better than that offered by MSAA while reducing performance by only 2-6% (MSAA reduces performance by 15%+).

As for HD 6870 Xfire being "faster" than a GTX 580 -- I have a 6990 right now and 70 FPS on the 6990 feels "worse" than 40 FPS on the GTX 580 did. Probably due to multi-stutter or something, so I can imagine the 6870 CrossFire suffers even more.

I'd get the 7970 3GB if I were in your position.

^^^ this. My 460's felt noticeably bad under 50fps. All I could run was high presets due to VRAM. My 6950 feels smoother and runs higher options then my 460's ever could. I imagine crossfire 6950/6970's should make quick work of BF3. I'm running a mix of high and ultra with one card, and those were the defaults. Which do a great job selecting what's best for your hardware
