I'm going to build a Desktop and I found this nifty combo that was recommended by Nvidia and I want to know if it checks out to run bF3 with no problems. I am new to pc building so this will be my first. Will it run other games just as well?

Here are the parts I would buy, I took cutebeans advice and tweaked it. Will this setup be my dream come true?

Don't get that HDD. Prices have already adjusted that HDDs are now half price of the inflated ones.

A seagate 500gb would only cost $60 and a samsung spinpoint 1tb is $80 from newegg.

Get a GTX560ti not the 560.

CM PSU sucks. Don't get it. Get a Corsair CX500w.

If you get the following advice. BF3 wuld be easily run on HIGH not sure on ultra though but a quick youtube video will show you.

The best case you can get is a HAF 912 for only $60

You might want to get a NZXT Elite 210 $50. Both are pretty good.
