I am building my very first gaming pc. I will use an Intel core i3 3240 processor clocked at 3.4 GHz and 4 GB of Ram. My os will be windows 7 professional 64 bit. My motherboard is an Asus H61M-E All-in-one LGA1155. the graphics card will be the ASUS EAH6450 SILENT 1GD3. I will be gaming on this computer for games like battlefield 3 on medium settings. I want to know if this is a good first build?

No it's not for a gaming build. The 6450 is weaker than the A10-5800k iGPU.
What is your budget?

-The FX-6300 will do better in gaming than an i3. It is also overclockable when you buy an aftermarket cpu cooler in the future.
-Much stronger gpu. You can play BF3 at high-ultra settings.
-All shipping is included. NCIX has free shipping for orders $100 and up, so buy the HDD and PSU there.
