    Not sure what your budget is but the GTX650 on it's own won't max out BF3, maybe 2 in SLI?? Personally, I'd look at a GTX670 if your budget allows or look at last gen - 2xAMD 7850's/70's in Crossfire are plenty for BF3 Ultra.

    Edit: assuming you're running at 1080p

    Cool, should handle that. Hope you don't mind, had a quick scout around and came up with this config. The 2500k would allow for overclocking in the future, with a bit of aftermarket cooling, and the 7850 will hardly break a sweat at 720p. Might give you a bit more headroom in the future.

    That config isn't too bad Simon, though the power supply is a bit of overkill. 500W as the OP listed will be more than enough as well. Might save enough to pay the tax and have a little left over with getting the 500W. ;)
