I want a computer that can run bf3 on high and on Crysis 3 (it doesn't have too). Heres the build.

Intel® - Pentium® 3.0GHz Processor G860

Corsair Vengeance 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (CMZ4GX3M2A1600C9)

GIGABYTE GV-R785OC-1GD Radeon HD 7850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Gigabyte LGA 1155 Intel B75 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX DDR3 1600 Motherboards GA-B75M-D3H

WD Blue 1 TB Desktop Hard Drive: 3.5 Inch, 7200 RPM, SATA 6 Gb/s, 64 MB Cache - WD10EZEX

Lite-On Super AllWrite 24X SATA DVD+/-RW Dual Layer Drive - Bulk - IHAS124-04 (Black)

Corsair Builder Series CX 600 Watt ATX/EPS 80 PLUS (CX600)

Fractal Design - Core 1000 Case

Ok there you go. Tell me if the parts aren't compatible with each other.

A little bit too much on PSU, downgrade to 500W and at least get an i3-3220?

Your parts are compatible.

Is this your full budget?

I would recomend that you go for Ivy Bridge i3 at least... it will smoke out Pentium G860 in games.

This is what I came up with while trying not to rely on mail in rebates. You can squeeze in a 7870 but I recommend stepping up to a 500w if you do that, and when I did that it came to around $570 after rebates with a corsair psu. The GPU includes the new bioshock and tomb raider games.
