In BF3 all you need on high is Mesh quality. The rest can be on low or medium for competitive play(most competitive players don't give rats ass for visuals,it's just fps and fast killing).
If you want visuals to be on the absolute maximum while playing on 64slot servers then you need absolute maximum CPU and GPU can provide,so 39xxK and GTX680 (unless you want to just look at beautiful scenery and get killed all the time
edit: to get best visuals and little cost on performance front on your current machine, google "danoc's FXAA injector" and download and install the "performance version".
