Seeking advice on new BF3 Build

CPU: i5 2500k $220

Motherboard: ASUS p8Z68-LE - $145

RAM - Corsair CMZ4GX3M1A1600C9 Vengeance 4GB 1X4GB DDR3-1600 CL9-9-9-24 Memory (buying 2) $56

Case - Corsair Carbide Series 400R Mid-Tower Case ATX 4X5.25 6X3.5INT USB 1394 No PS $90

PSU: XFX 650W PRO650W Core Edition Single Rail ATX 12V 53A 24PIN ATX Power Supply 80PLUS Bronze PSU $80

Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB SATA3 6GB/S 7200RPM 64MB Cache 3.5IN Dual Proc Hard Drive OEM $80

Graphics card: ASUS ENGTX570DCII/2DIS/12 GeForce GTX 570 pre overclocked card - $340

Extras: PC Assembly and Testing With 1 Year Limited NCIX System Warranty (PRE-CONFIG WIN. OS If Purchased) - $50

Total= $1061.08 before shipping and taxes.

I live in Canada, and this is before rebates. I hear that it takes like a week longer to ship with the NCIX assembly, so I probably won't be able to use the rebates...thoughts on this gaming build?

  1. I would recommend an ssd to install your OS. Boot times for all programs and load times for BF3 will be much quicker.
    This should be plenty, and you can always place music, movies, and any other files in your Western Digital.
    Are you planning on over clocking your processor, I would also recommend a aftermarket cooler for it.
  2. Yes planning on buying an aftermarket cooler, any suggestions? Also, I'm trying to keep around $1100. I might change the 1TB drive for an SSD. Any suggestions :P?
    This one got a lot of good reviews(like in the 1000s), great for over clocking.

    It's nice that it's $25 in the US, but $40 in Canada. I'll likely still buy it. Thanks.

    Is the price of my parts around the market average or overpriced?
