I just posted this build for another person that was looking for a rig for BF3, so this will be great for you too!

Up the case to something you like (the one i picked is USB 3.0)
Grab another 580 if you can and if you want

I usually dont go with Rosewill PSUs but for a 1000W less than $100 I would even take it. Get a Antec, Corsair, XFX or other major brand PSU if you want to switch it out.

Rosewill BLACKHAWK Gaming ATX Mid Tower - $70.00 (on sale)

Intel Core i5-2500K - $200.00 (on sale GRAB IT FAST!)

ASRock Z68 Extreme4 - $175.00

Hyper 212 Plus - $26.00

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 - $30.00 (on sale)

EVGA SuperClocked 015-P3-1582-TR GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) 1536MB - $500.00

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 1TB 7200RPM - $150.00

LITE-ON DVD Burner - $17.00 (on sale)
