Hello, fairly sure I've put this is the right thread, If not I'm sorry but it's my first time asking a question on this site.

I would like to know if I would be able to play games like Arma 3, Battlefield 3 perhaps even 4, Generally graphically intensive games like that on the following system.

(PLEASE NOTE I live in New Zealand so prices for components are much much higher for anything here compared to the US Also I can't order from Newegg or anything because they either don't do international shipping or shipping prices are $150+) If you know of any sites that do free or very low price international shipping it would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!)

CPU: i5 3570K will OC to safe temps when I get it

Cooling: Cooler master sickleflow 2X 120MM front intake fans
CM Megaflow 240MM top exhaust fan, (the rest of the fans will be stock and upgraded later) Might do water cooling if there are good cheap ones.

Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme 4 (Intel obviously)

RAM: Will probably go for 1666Mhz 8GB - Will upgrade to 16GB later (Unsure of brand yet, some advice here would be nice, I'm looking for best bang for buck.

GFX Card:Sapphire Radeon HD7750 HDMI 2GB (NZ 118$) It's cheap so I'll probably end up with two of them, Later in the future. Unless you can recommend a better card for a very similar if not cheaper price

Chassis: Cooler master HAF 912 plus

Sorry for the very long question also it may be good to know that I'm only 13 so if you see some poor choices of components just blame it on my age.

Thanks!

- I don't see a PSU or Hard Drive but I'll assume you did that on purpose.
- You also don't need a full atx board to get the job done. Get a micro atx board.
- You spend too much of your budget on your CPU and not enough on your gpu. You should either look at a i3 or get an amd build.
- Don't bother buying fans right out the gate. The HAF has good airflow and you will not need any more. Use that cash on your GPU.
- I would keep to an amd video card as they offer 3 free games with the purchase, that's like $180 in savings.

agreed with thor220, for gaming you need to ramp up the gpu, processor does not play important part in gaming (at least most of them). I'd get a lower i5, you don't even need to overclock since it will only have minimal impact on framerate (if any!) and get a cheaper motherboard (probably b75 or h77 chipset). Saving in both processor and motherboard (also third party cpu heatsink won't be necessary if you don't overclock, right?) should be enough to get a decent gpu, and it will improve your gaming experience soo much.
