Re: For gaming, i7 or i5? 1155 or 1366 socket?
Nothing wrong with EVGA. Just be sure your case can fit it, since the FTW is an Extended ATX board.
If you want a standard ATX I'd take a look at the P67/Z68 SLI, they have generally the same features.
As to maxing out BF3, going to go out on a limb here and say the GTX 470 won't max all settings.
Please read through the thread thoroughly before responding.
