if it sOC'ing then obviously those combo's i marked up are useless...lemme take a look at that again.

so 230 is for cpu and mobo?

:)  got everything with a black theme in mind.
what dya mean by 6?

that mobo can later handle a bulldozer proc later down the road...actually i'd ask you to hold onto cash, wait a bit until more tech is released...but the ram and moboa re really good offers!

lets have a look at your current specs - shall we? :) 

6GB is actually a silly idea...with dual channel mem in effect from a ong time - you would either get 3x2GB sticks which nulls out the feature of dual channel mem architecture.

if you get 2GB sticks then you can have a minimum of 2GB in only one slot or 8GB on all 4 slots poulated

3GB sticks aren't (yet) made.... so its either 2/4/8/16

FYI - for most games now, getting anything above 4GB isn't fully utilized - i can't find the link but you could do a google search of the maximum ram utilization...add that with an OC as well...so you can see a limit to how much you can actually use in real world apps/work

BF3 huh? like i said, lemme see the specs of current rig and maybe we can handle it a lil differently.

:lol:  waiting can be a PITA - but when you pull the trigger with teh right parts - you're happy a fish in the sea :D

okay :) 

that 5700 GPU...?

is that a 5770?

your system is fine and dandy!!!!

have a read at this;
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battlefield_3#Development

then wait for BF3 to officially release - some thigns might change but not all specs for running the game. YOU ARE GOOD with what you have!

* keep that $300 intact and splash it on newer GPU's from AMD/Nvidia later in Q1 2012...actually at the end of 2011 you might hear some cards from the two camps.
