Good Build?

So I'm completely new to building a PC and was just wondering if this was any good?

I want it too run Battlefield 3 decently. Any criticism is welcomed since I have no idea what I'm doing lol.

    You have a pretty expensive board meant for dual vid cards, and a psu meant for one of those cards.

  5. Approximate Purchase Date: 2 Months

    Budget Range: 500-600 Not including the monitor

    System Usage from Most to Least Important: Games, mainly battlefield 3.

    Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, speakers.

    Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Any UK online based outlet

    Parts Preferences: Intel

    Overclocking: Maybe

    SLI or Crossfire: Don't even know what it means

    Monitor Resolution: Not sure

    Additional Comments: Nice if it was quiet
  6. Some considerations:

    1 - Why do you need the network card?
    2 - If your monitor is 24" and you want great performance, you should consider up-grading your GPU. GTX 560 is great, but depending on AA and AF, it can get slow @1920x1080. Should you decide to stick to it, don't waste time getting the OC card, unless the price difference is minimal. OC it yourself and save some cash.
    3 - I suggest getting a full tower case. Later on, when you want to SLI, or decide to get a bigger GPU, it will be better. Plus, it helps lowering your temps today.
    4 - +1 on your PSU x mobo: you either up-grade you PSU (750W) or down-grade your mobo.
  7. This build doesn't include the graphics card, and it still comes close to £500 so maybe a H61 build with a 2300 SB cpu and 1333 RAM could bring the price down.
