My budget is about 800USD but I'm from India., so I want to know whether above configuration is good?
I want to play games like battlefield, crysis 3, skyrim, etc at high if possible

I am not a master wiz at this but I did do some research. Would you go with an Amd gpu? You will get more bang for your buck. You should also think about getting an OC GPU. There are a lot of tutorials online on how to do this.

This was a build that was suggested to me by one of the top admins on the forums. It was a 850 dollar build. But it included an os, mouse and keyboard.

That's a nice build but here 3350p isn't available and 7870 costs very high. 7850 is in my reach but that's weaker than gtx 660. I like amd graphics more but I can't get better than 660. So....
Is this build okay?

How are you planning to buy your parts? Amazon should have all the parts on the list. Are you planning to upgrade your build in a few years?

Ok I see. Well in my opinion your build seems good. You should be able to run games like battle field 3 on high settings. But I would change a few things. Go with an OC CPU. And why do you need 2 TB of memory. Games like Bf3 only take up 15 GBs of memory. So you might not need that much memory.

I need 1TB. But the price difference in 1 TB n 2 TB here in india is very less so I'm getting 2 TB. Also I can't get oc cpu like 3570k because it's very costly here, n over my budget. Overall is this build ok? Like psu, case n motherboard? Are they compatible?
