What is the best card for 1920x gaming? Obviously the new cards will smash it, I'm just after the most economical option with the best FPS. Oh and dual monitors are a distinct possibility

HD7850 is I think best bang for buck.

What's a distinct possibility? GTX570 or 7850 would do.

GTX 560 and GTX 560 Ti are good cards also 7850/7870 depending on your budget are great cards they have nice low power consumption and run cool. What is your budget and do you want to max games out or at what settings and FPS do you want them to run?
My baby: i5 2500K, ASUS P8Z68-V Pro Gen3, ASUS GTX 560 with 120MHz coreclock overclock, 8GB DDR3 G.Skill Ripjaws X 1600MHz 9-9-9-24 RAM, Corsair AX650, Corsair H60 and Antec P280.

I picked up a 6780 a fair while ago and found it more then adequate for both the games your suggesting you want to play. You should be able to source one for 150 or less these days if you look at the right places. But just bare in mind that bf3 you still wont be running it on max with a budget card at that kind of res. Should happily cruise along on medium though, and starcraft 2 should purr on max. :D
