Hi i have never built a pc before and its going to be my first time.
i have decided that i am going to buy the components off "www.ebuyer.com"

I basically want to create a computer which is for gaming however not hardcore.. for example playing games like battlfield 3 which is soon to be released in max detail.

Can you please advice me with what components to get as i am a 'noob' and have no knowledge about computer parts, however i am capable of putting the components together :D  .

thanks.

Parts Preferences: no knowledge on brands


Overclocking: no


SLI or Crossfire: no clue what either means

Additional Comments: i would prefer a quite pc and also a pc that does not take a lot of electricity.

You can yes, so you can drop the antec 300 and the 2 extra fans and use that case instead.

To be honest, no idea. I'm sure someone who has a 6950 and likes crysis 2 can tell us. It most certainly is playable.
