Hello!

I just need everyone's opinion on a build that I'm planning to do for BF3, Skyrim, D3 etc. I built a computer back in 2006 but I've been out of the technological loop in terms of hardware for the past few years.

Mobo: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
CPU: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... (Should I get an aftermarket cooler for this? if so pls recommend me one)
PSU: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
Case: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
HDD: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...
Video Card: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
Ram: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...
DVD: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...

Thanks guys! Also just wondering if the PSU will be able to handle my video card? Also, maybe should I get a bigger PSU incase I plan to go SLI in the future? Will my case be large enough to fit the video card?

Appreciate the help.

your psu imo, cant handle sli setup.
nice choises overall but 16 gb, dont you think its a bit overkill.
if its just for bragging its fine but 8gb will do the job perfectly.
go for atleast a 850w psu for furureprofing

yes the 850 should do the job without issue.

Ram looks ok

just looking at ur mobo, i know it says PCI-Express 3.0

but it als says it will only do 1@x16 and as soon as you drop in a 2nd card it will do (1 x16 and 1 x8)

im sure there are boards out there that will do 2 cards at x16
