That's a good upgrade coming from what you had. It's similar to what I have now to what I'll be upgrading too. I'm allowed a $1,000 budget. I find I can upgrade to pretty much what I want to with that. The only I'd like to get that I can't is a GTX 680. I'll have to settle for the 670, but that's OK....it will be more than enough for BF3 or any other game for that matter!
Yeah i'm sure it will run great on my PC but if not I am def prepared to purchase another 580GTX or if the 680GTX is out then I will shoot for that. One thing I noticed when watching the 12min video was it micro stuttered or micro paused at certain points throughout the video, I hope that get that sorted before the game is released. Also one thing I am also worried about is the bugs, geez BF2 had some nasty ones and I remember one patch totatlly broke the game would kick everyone off and it was totally unplayable (v1.2) I think was the patch. Also BF BC2 wasn't plain sailing either from the get go
