PC Build Noob Needing Help.

My Specs of the PC Build i'm getting is-
Powercolor Radeon HD7870 GHz Edition OC 2GB
Seagate Barracuda 1TB ST1000DM003
Kingston HyperX KHX1600C9D3K2/8GX (2x4GB) DDR3
Gigabyte F2A88XM-D3H Motherboard
AMD FX-8320 8 Core Black Edition Processor
Aerocool VP650 650W Power Supply
- Am i missing anything for the Build? I've already got a monitor and keyboard and mouse.
What case should i get? I was thinking about a Antec One Gaming Case but i have no idea if that will work, Someone help?
And i'm also wondering if this PC Build will run battlefield 3 max 60fps?
Thanks, I'm hoping i can finally get into PC Gaming!

    You have problems with your build.

    Firstly, Aerocool PSUs are dreadful. I would highly recommend you get this one instead -

    Antec High Current gamer 620M 80+ Bronze certified semi-modular PSU - http://pcpartpicker.com/part/antec-power-supply-hcg620m

    Secondly, your CPU and motherboard are incompatible. The AMD FX-8320 requires an AM3+ Socket motherboard and the motherboard you have selected is and FM2+ Motherboard. This motherboard will do for your build -

    Asus M5A97 EVO R2.0 Socket AM3+ Motherboard - http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-motherboard-m5a97evor20

    Finally, I highly recommend an aftermarket heat sink, as the Piledriver CPUs can get very warm quickly -

    Cooler master Hyper 212 EVO - http://pcpartpicker.com/part/cooler-master-cpu-cooler-rr212e20pkr1

    I hope this helps your build.
  2. Do you need a copy of Windows 8 as well? If so you need an optical drive unless you choose to install via USB flash drive.
  3. What's your budget and country of origin? Knowing those two things will help to suggest a rig.
