Okay I'm currently looking into building a PC to run Battlefield 3 when it comes out and have come up with the following items I was wondering if the community could just look over it and offer and advice or suggestions or even problems with it, since this is my first build totally. Things to note would be my budget is £500 I know its well over that but I'm hoping the price will go down when I buy it, which will be after battlefield 3 so in about 2 months or 3. I'm buying from e buyer. I don't have a monitor and haven't even looked into that yet either. I think thats about it. So here's the parts. Oh and overclocking I don't really know much about but will probably do in the future.

Problems with the hard drive and PSU.

The PSU is a noname. Get a quality PSU. You'll regret it otherwise.

Don't get a Green series hard drive. You'll be disappointed with the performance. Get a black series hard drive instead.
