Hello everybody, I am currently building a gaming PC with a budget of $700-750 tops. I tried to pick out my parts on Newegg and this is what I got so far:

Open for criticism and advice :D !

Oh yeah! my aim is to be able to nicely play Battle Field: Bad Company 2 on so on and so forth.

ok, Samsung F3 1 TB drive. ist $5 cheaper, faster, and more space.

nothing wrong with the 460, but I'd suggest changing to a HD6850 for later Crossfire, basically the same price:

Even though its not in a combo, getting this motherboard saves a ton of money, which still allowing crossfire (8x/8x is good enough compared to 16x/16x):

get the 955 instead of the 965. increment one number in the bios, and the 955 is a 965.

Get this PSU, even though its not in a combo, saves a ton of money and can handle crossfired 6850s

and then this DDR3-1600 RAM:
