LMAO, if only i get paid that much to afford it
. But i will mostly be gaming on Guild Wars 2...so i dont need super graphics. I just want smooth frame rates with high textures enough to get by without lag on 3474 x 1920 resolution.

Can someone else more familiar with BF3's VRAM requirements backup my assumptions?
And I take back what I said about not being able to run it at that resolution @60fps on high. If I turned off HBAO, I'm sure I could pump 100+ fps easily at 1080p (more if I turned down 4x MSAA). So you should be able to get 50fps at that resolution with High settings and/or light anti-aliasing methods.
Edit: Proof that you should be fine if you turn off SSAO. Battlefield 3 NVSurround GTX 680
Wow, i did some research to everything you just said and its helped a lot. Im holding off on buying a 680 until other options come out as once i get one i will not upgrade for another 2-3 years. Thanks +1 rep.
