For a resolution that great, i'd say you'd be in GTX 580 territory. I suspect even that would struggle when laden with anti ailiasing and more advanced effects. You may also want to check out cards with greater VRAM such as the 3GB's because extra resolution eats up RAM.

You should be fine if you get GTX 580.. though DICE/NVIDIA said if you really want to be sure, then grab GTX 580 SLI.

A second GTX 560 would work too.

What is this ? Did they make some official statement on what hardware will be needed for maximizing the game ?

It was mentioned actually be one of the DICE devs. They said it was playing on a GTX580, but to be absolutely sure to play it on high, grab SLI 580's.
post #9127 of 52874
2GB of VRAM is plenty for one 2560x1600. You just need 2x 2.5GB 570s or 2x 6950/70s.
post #9128 of 52874
Umm, what should I go for? SLI 560s, get a single 570, or a single 580 (If I can find it at a good price)

Depending on where you live, you should be able to find a GTX 580 3gb on CraigsList for <$350. I'm a big believer in using dual GPU's though. So, since you already have a GTX 560 Ti, I would just get another one and run them in SLI -- since that beats the performance of a GTX 580 & GTX 590 by a good margin anyway.
