We already recommended the 660ti and 7950 which is in his budget and he wants to max all games.

Also, Haswell has an ETA of June next year. The 3570k will be quite fine for quite a long while.

Guys, my local pc shop just told me that this graphics card will run BF3 on ultra:
Is so, will this card run at over 30 fps on ultra?

No, that card is junk intended for medium to low end systems.
