Is this graphics card good for gaming?

I am thinking of purchasing the EVGA GeForce GTX 580 Video Card for a gaming computer and I need to know if this is a good gaming card. Will it be able to run high end games on max graphics?
(for example: ArmA II, Battlefield 3, Modern warfare 3, etc..)
Update: @n/a

No need to get an orgasm over it, i just asked a question to make sure I don't get fu.cked in the head since I want to run intense stuff like ArmA II and III on the highest settings. It wouldn't be nice to spend $470 on something that doesn't do what you want
