  1. would a GTX 560 be able to run battlefield 3 on the ultra preset with 2x or 4x AA (which is enough for me)? id be hoping for 55+FPS im most situations and id be playing in 1080p. I would probably get a slightly overclocked version (im talking non TI here)

    Judging by "Battlefield 3 GPU & CPU Performance" review I would say no.

    It looks as if you will need a GTX 570 for 55+ FPS @ 4x AA. From all the benches I've seen the GTX 560Ti doesn't even make 55+ much less the non Ti version. However the benches I've seen didn't have any stats on 2x AA setting either.

    No, absolutely nowhere near. A GTX 570 will give you 50-60fps with 0xAA at 1080p but for 4xAA you need a GTX 670/680 or Radeon 7950/7970. MSAA is a killer for frame rates and bear in mind that multiplayer BF3 runs quite a bit slower than single player which is what most benchmarks are run on.

    With a non-Ti GTX 560 I think medium settings will get you 55+ fps.
