AMD Gaming Rig, thoughts/adivice???

Hey guys,

I plan to build a gaming PC for my 18th bday which is this Wednesday (15th). I have been resarching this build for several months now, and I have posted a few plans. This is my final plan, I already have a PSU (600 watt OCZ) and case that I bought on Black Friday.

I want to stay under $600.

Looking to play Bad Company 2 and Crysis.


Current Plan:

CPU: AMD Athlon II X3 445 Rana 3.1GHz Socket AM3 95W Triple-Core Desktop Processor $79

Motherboard: MSI 870-G45 AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard $70

Memory: G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory $50

GPU: XFX HD-685X-ZDFC Radeon HD 6850 1GB 256-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 $195

HDD: 320GB Samsung Spinpoint F4

OS: WIN7 Home Premium


I might get an i3-540, I am still iffy on that one.

thanks
