New build, I want some advise !! :)

Hey every one ! I just selected my components for a new rig, So here it goes:

MOBO: MSI 880GM-E41
CPU: AMD Phantom x4 965 BE
GFX: HD Radeon 6850 Power color
Case: APEX TX-381
Ram: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB)
PSU: Antec NEO ECO 520C

I'm going to order it from Newegg.ca and it's gonna cost me 530$ (with taxes, shipping etc.).

It's a budget rig, but I'm hoping to run BF3 at high with a min of 45fps @1366x768p.

So what do you guys think, will I be able to run it and are all the components compatible together ?
I might want to OC a little bit too.

Thanks alot !! :)

More about build advise
  1. Please fill out.

    If you can wait, wait for BD to release.
  2. Well my budget is 500$, so even if I wait for BD, they will be too expensive...

    But will it be able to run BF3 at high ? Thanks !
  3. No BD will be cheaper since it's a late launch. Pricing to be the FX-4110 being the 965-970's price. Again Fill it out.

    NVM. Just saw your resolution, yes you'd probably run it on High no AA.
  4. Ok thanks alot !! :D

    BTW is the MOBO good? Will I be able to OC.
  5. It'll OC OK.

    This'll do better and give you the ability to CF in the future but it costs a quite bit more.
  6. Will it OC @4ghz stable ?? (With a new heasink)

    I'm sry to have that much questions, but it's my first rig and I don't really know MSI and their products :P
  7. Probably with the board suggested, most likely not about 880G board. Though I don't know, It depends on the grade of the CPU (Random) and also it depends on the board, I haven't tried anyother AMD chipset other than 790FX so I can't say for sure.
  8. Your link didn't work. Could you tell me the name of the board or repost the link. Thanks alot for your help !! :D
