What the hell guys!

Get a quad core if you want to play BF3. Phenom ii x4 955
Get an AM3+

Change the PSU.

A corsair Cx600w or Antec Earthwatts 650w

Dont' get a green drive. It's slow compared to other drives since it's specific use is for storage. Get a samsung spinpoint f3 or WD caviar black for the boot drive ( where you will put your OS).
