Sorry for the bother but I am a first time PC builder and need some advice from one of you veterans. I want to build a gaming PC with a budget of $850-$900 (preferably $850 of course). I have already constructed a component list, but I am not sure if it is the best I can do for the money I am dishing out! Please help me with the following questions.

1. Best bang for my buck?
2. Compatible?
3. Will it play games like Crisis 3 and Battlefield on High settings with 60+ FPS?
4. Personal advice for building and/or finding components?
5. Thank you for you contribution!

You got the wrong cooler for the CPU (listed at AMD)

Which version of Battlefield? You probably don't need an aftermarket cooler since your CPU can't be overclocked (it's a non- "k"). Better can probably be put together at that budget. Do you already have a keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers/headphones and/or OS?

Both 3 and 4! Thanks for the feedback so fast! I already have my basic components (keyboard, mouse, speakers, etc.)

If you have suggestions on how to make this build better please suggest!

do you have an OS? If not, does it need to be included and are we talking Win 7 or 8?

Since it's a gaming build, you should be spending more towards the GPU. Also, the PSU that you chose is from a very bad brand, I don't recommend it. For $850 here's what I would get :

Wow you are awesome! That was fast and awesome! thanks!

I noticed you picked a cheaply priced motherboard, does this affect much?

On a motherboard, what is important is having all the ports that you need. This one does it.
